The Accelerated Funding program will target both public and community run formal primary schools as well as ABE centers in the four FMS and Benadir. Specific targets include children from IDP communities, returnees, the most disadvantaged urban host communities and children with disabilities.
The GPE funded Accelerated Funding (AF) program will contribute towards the implementation of part of the ECW MYRP outcomes. The AF program will focus on achieving the first three MYRP outcomes, namely, (a) equitable access to education for emergency affected children is increased; (b) learning outcomes are improved for emergency affected children; and (c) gender equity and equality are increased.
The AF program will take two strategic approaches: (a) increasing access to education for out-of-school vulnerable displaced children and children from poor families in host communities; and (b) retention of emergency affected children already in school but at risk of dropping out. The AF program will integrate child protection activities at the school level enhancing education’s protective role.
The program will promote protective learning environments for emergency affected children through promoting child rights, wellbeing and improving the safety and conduciveness of the learning environment.
