Each daira in the camps (there are between 6 and 7 dairas per camp) has a primary school, staffed with teachers trained in either the vocational schools in the camps or abroad. Until the early 1990s, many children studied at two large boarding schools set up around the camps. But due to a rapidly growing population and scarce resources, most children are now being sent abroad for higher education. Algeria, Cuba and more recently Spain are the main recipients of Saharawi sudents. For financial reasons, those sent to Cuba sometimes spend up to 14 years away before returning to the camps. Cuba has sponsored the education of many thousands of students.
