Nagaland: Education project worth $68 million approved by World Bank
The World Bank on Wednesday approved a $68 million project to promote and enhance quality education in Nagaland.
The project Enhancing Classroom Teaching and Resources Project in the Northeastern state of India aims to enhance classroom teaching and resources. With the $68 million project, the World Bank plans to enhance classroom instruction, build technology systems to provide teachers and students with more access to blended and online learning, create opportunities for the professional development of the teachers and also allow better monitoring of policies and programs.
In total, the World Bank has approved four projects in India worth $800 million supporting a range of development initiatives that include improving the safety and performance of existing dams across various states in the country and strengthening India’s social protection architecture.
"The four projects will support India’s efforts to build back better by creating a sustainable and resilient economy. Development work today has an additional responsibility – to help poor and vulnerable families roll back the adverse impact that the pandemic has had on their lives," said Junaid Ahmad, Country Director, World Bank India.
He added, "These projects will help many such families access better income opportunities, education, water supply and benefit from the expanded social protection schemes of the government."
