Project Summary

The project aims to increase IDP children’s access to quality, protective education and build resilience of children affected by displacement due to disaster and conflict.  Access to quality education will be facilitated by addressing identified barriers such as societal gender norms, financial constraints, fear of attacks on education and distress endured by the upheaval from both conflict and disaster.
