UNESCO says that over 56 million young people in sub-Saharan Africa have not completed primary school and lack basic skills for employment

The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) says that over 56 million young people in sub-Saharan Africa have not completed primary school and lack basic skills for employment.

According to a new report, the African leg of the United Nations Global Monitoring Report on Education, which was released by the UNESCO in Soweto, "In sub-Saharan Africa about 30 million [children] are still missing out on primary school and 22 million are out of secondary school, missing out on vital skills for future employment."

The report calculated that on top of the US$16 billion needed annually to achieve universal lower education by 2015, it would cost US$8 billion in aid to achieve universal lower education.
