The construction of two contemporary colleges, based on a four-building model, will be built in the villages of Morofé and Logbakro in the Yamoussoukro department. This construction project will be undertaken under the auspices of the French Debt Reduction and Development Contract (C2d). The financial commitment to realize these vital educational infrastructures stands at 1.2 billion CFA francs for both establishments combined.
Each of these modern institutions aims to foster optimal learning environments. They will include essential amenities such as tables-benches, offices, multimedia rooms, and administrative blocks. The total investment for each college is pegged at 600 million CFA francs.
Completion Date For The Construction Of These Colleges in Yamoussoukro.
The construction of these colleges in Yamoussoukro will unfold over a span of 15 months. The establishment of these local colleges carries the potential to dramatically reduce the arduous daily commutes undertaken by students. The students, often of tender age, currently embark on long journeys early in the morning. They accomplish this either on foot or by bicycle to reach the distant colleges of Yamoussoukro. They then return home in the evening, a pattern that disrupts their studies and family life.
Minister Souleymane Diarrassouba underscored the broader implications of these educational endeavors. He affirmed that they lay the foundation for the sustainable development of the city. The minister also expressed gratitude towards President Alassane Ouattara and Prime Minister Patrick Achi. This was for their instrumental roles in initiatives that propelled the growth of both Côte d’Ivoire and Yamoussoukro.
Logistically, the new construction of these colleges in Morofé will cater to students from Abouakouassikro, Bonzi, and Saabo.
Augustin Thiam wholeheartedly welcomed the construction of contemporary colleges in Yamoussoukro, recognizing its aim to provide equitable opportunities for success to children across all social strata in Côte d’Ivoire. This initiative underscores a commitment to creating an inclusive educational landscape that empowers every child in their pursuit of knowledge and growth.
