AEC has implemented the provision of basic education in emergency (EIE) services to vulnerable, IDPs and host communities in a three-month school-based project. The implementation was conducted within a framework of a pilot assessment and evaluation.
The major focus of the project was the subjective and perceptual aspects of bringing quality learning opportunities for all ages in situations of crisis. This had the aim of minimizing the effects on learners’ experiences due to crisis of conflicts and natural disasters to restore or bring back education to normalcy through creation of conducive learning spaces. The project also aimed at capacity building for teachers, back to learning awareness campaigns and financial motivation through payment of teacher’s incentive and to provide physical, psychosocial support in order to sustain and save lives in emergency. So far, AET has been able to achieve the following;
- Conducted consultative meetings with the State Ministry of Education and reaching 200 community leaders, 500 IDPS and 12,000 host communities on the roll out of the project’s implementation.
- Established 17 protective temporary learning spaces.
- Established 30 separate sanitation facilities established.
- Supported 10 ECD Volunteer teachers by provision of teacher’s incentives.
- Trained education partners in EIE, Child centred disaster risk reduction and early child hood development psychosocial support and lifesaving skills.
- Awareness campaigns conducted on EIE life skills/life-saving messages including GBV and gender equality.
- Supply of education materials in emergency benefiting over 8000 learners.
