IV.1 Poverty Indicators
The poverty indicators are not available because the household budget survey has not been carried out.
IV.2 Indicators of Access to Basic Social Services
In attempt to improve the quality of teaching and apprenticeship and in order to provide youth and adults with the qualifications both they and their employers need, the government made a number of areas of training available to a variety of target populations with a view to improving their living conditions.
With regard to education, efforts have been made to increase the number of teachers trained, as noted in secondary and primary education. Despite the information received, which shows a slight decline in the level of trained teachers, the government is very concerned with increasing these numbers at both levels of education. It should be noted that 22 secondary school teachers and 66 primary school teachers were trained in 2005-06.
Regarding vocational training, the Budo-Budo Vocational Training Center planned 34 training actions and carried out 27 of them in a variety of areas. Between January and September, 221 students were trained.
Sixteen students were trained at the Polytechnic Center.
All these efforts contribute to an improvement in the indicators, as reflected below.
