Africa is ushering into an era that most observers and pundits are predicting will determine its destiny as the continent of the future. But to fulfill this promised bright future, the continent has to come to terms with its education and training systems that are yet to fully shed the weight of its colonial legacy and its own tribulations as a relatively new political and economic entity and player in the world arena.

The concept behind CESA as a ‘Strategy’ and not a definitive Action Plan provides a robust opportunity for a variety of players to participate, on their own and/or in a coalition, in the implementation of the continental framework. Every participating agency contributes with its particular strengths towards the achievement of the overall vision and mission of the Continental Education Strategy for Africa, within identified action areas.

So far fourteen (14) thematic clusters have been identified including: 

STEM Education, ICT in Education, Teacher Development, Women & Girls Education, Higher Education, School Feeding, Peace and Education, Literacy and Lifelong Learning, Education Planning, TVET, Life Skills, Early Childhood Education, Students' Association and Parents' Association. Out of these identified areas, eight (8) clusters have been launched while others are yet to be launched. The progress on these clusters is herewith provided in this report.

Invitation is open to organisations and institutions in Africa to join any of the launched CESA Clusters in STEM Education, ICT in Education, Teacher Development, Women & Girls Education, Higher Education, School Feeding, Peace and Education and Education Planning.
