ADRA Somalia has sub-contracted Africa Educational Trust (AET) to implement selected activities under the Education Cannot Wait Multi-Year Resilience Program (ECW MYRP) in Jubaland state of Federal Republic of Somalia. The project, dubbed Support for Emergency Education in Jubaland seeks to achieve the following outcomes:
Outcome 1: Equitable access to education for emergency-affected children and youth is increased Outcome 2: Learning outcomes are improved for emergency-affected children and youth
Outcome 3: Gender equity and equality are increased
Outcome 4: Protective learning environments are established for emergency-affected children and youth
Outcome 5: Communities are more resilient to shocks and prioritize education for children
AET will collaborate with schools, CECs, MoECHE, and State Ministries of Education, REOs, and host communities to target primary age children and out-of-school youth, especially IDPs and returnee communities, promoting equitable educational opportunities for girls and inclusion for children with disabilities. Through engagement with communities, the project will raise awareness of the importance of education engendering a positive context for community support for children to enter education. The project will increase access to primary education and ABE through the rehabilitation of existing learning spaces and the provision of teaching and learning materials. Teachers and headteachers will be trained in contextually relevant pedagogy, including gender equity and inclusive approaches, improving the quality of teaching and learning outcomes for primary students as well as training in ABE for out of school youth
One of the project’s main activities is to train ABE teachers and equip them with basic knowledge and skills in the methodology of teaching in the classrooms and improve their capacity. Alternative Basic Education (ABE) is an innovative, flexible, cost-effective, and community-managed program of education, complementary to the formal education system, organized for out-of-school children. It generally seeks to target those with limited access to traditional education to provide a relative alternative pathway for primary education. ABE is intended to benefit children whose circumstances do not allow participation in formal education such as nomadic/pastoralist children, IDPs, and isolated rural communities. It also enables out-of-school children to complete basic primary education and continue their education in formal schools.
