ABSTRACT

Within the theoretical framework of foreign aid, this paper focuses on the development of China's education aid policy to Africa and draws inferences on the future strategic direction of China's education aid to Africa. The paper first identifies the significance and necessity of China's education aid to Africa. It then describes the theoretical framework of foreign assistance and defines the types of China's education aid policy to Africa. The analytical part of the article uses historical development as a timeline to analyse the development of China's education aid to Africa in different periods and several key turning points. The paper concludes with an in-depth analysis of the opportunities and challenges facing China's education aid to Africa and makes targeted and practical recommendations.
