Unicef says it has allocated US$4 million for the development of education programs in Papua and West Papua provinces for the 2010-2012 period.

The support is being provided in efforts to improve the quality of education offered in the two provinces, Sri Karna, a member of Unicef’s education staff in Biak, said on Friday, as quoted by kompas.com.

Sri said the funding was intended to finance various programs, including school-based management and strategic education planning.

Unicef was also closely monitoring the education programs of other provinces, particularly Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam and East Nusa Tenggara, she said.
