This project aims to support the continuity of pre-primary and primary education for internally displaced girls and boys in the Somali and Oromia regions of Ethiopia. This project addresses gender-based barriers preventing access to education within internally displaced persons’ (IDPs) communities, caregivers and families. This project also aims to improve the provision of gender-responsive, safe and quality education through schools and distance education. Project activities include: (1) providing training to teachers and students on gender and age responsive coronavirus (COVID-19) precaution measures; (2) providing equipment and supplies (for example, personal protective equipment and dignity kits) to schools; (3) establishing and strengthening community-based gender and age responsive girls’ clubs; (4) providing girls and boys with gender and age responsive distance education materials; and (5) providing training to pre-primary children caregivers on supporting reading and math at home.
