Self-financing of basic education for minority workers 

This research project is led by TESF in collaboration with a successful grassroots, minority-led organisation which advocates and lobbies for the rights of minorities. Due to discrimination, underprivileged minority workers in the Horn of Africa are disproportionately represented in subsistence self-employment for survival rather than entrepreneurship employment for prosperity. Whilst most interventions in the region focus on providing minority children with a basic education, this research, which is informed by co-production, creates a space for minority workers to be involved in the design of their education provision. This initiative forms part of a broader process of community-led sustainable development and would in turn create opportunities for the workers to attain ‘decent work.’
