Carolus-Magnus-School in Burundi. The school benefits from the campaign "Your Day for Africa" by Aktion Tagwerk

Education in Burundi is compulsory for six years, between the ages of 7 and 13.[1] In 1998, the gross primary enrollment rate was 62 percent, and the net primary enrollment rate was 37 percent.[1] Primary school attendance rates are unavailable for Burundi.[1] While enrollment rates indicate a level of commitment to education, they do not always reflect children’s participation in school.[1] The government attempts to provide for most of the costs of education through grade six.[1] An inequitable distribution of educational resources favors children in the south and central regions of the nation.[1] Discrimination against females has resulted in differential access of girls to education.[1] More than a quarter of the country’s primary schools were destroyed in the war, and many teachers have been killed.[1] Teacher training has been interrupted and it is difficult to recruit teachers to provincial areas affected by fighting.[1]
