The project funded by the European Union fulfils the right to quality education for 4,000 crisis-affected children as schools reopen after Covid-19 related closures in Somalia.
With financial support from EU Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid (ECHO), FCA and its partner GREDO kicked off an Education in Emergencies response in Hudur district of South West State of Somalia.
Over 4,000 children from the most vulnerable settlements of Internally Displaced People (IDP) are expected to access safe and protected learning environments in six primary schools and three Accelerated Basic Education (ABE) centres for the academic year 2020-2021.
Schools and learning institutions across Somalia were closed in March 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak but were allowed to reopen in August. FCA has worked with sensitising teachers and school administrations in line with the government’s Covid-19 guidelines to support the safe reopening of schools, says Aburas Farah, FCA’s Senior
