Education and sustainable livelihoods for informal traders 

This project will be examining the research question ‘How can basic education be provided in a way that is best suited to promoting sustainable livelihood aspirations of informal traders?’ A university in the Horn of Africa will co-produce the curriculum with low-income and informal traders, which is significant as the co-production of a curriculum with people who are not literate or numerate is a creative and unusual approach that has never been done in the region and rarely elsewhere. They will provide a short pilot course of basic education, as a contribution to sustainable development, and to learn more general lessons about education for sustainable development within and beyond the region.
