The goal of this program is to create access to basic quality education for children and promote children’s rights to education. Education is a basic and fundamental human right and thus every child needs to have access to education. SOPISDEW’s education program aims at providing access to basic quality education for children including formal, non-formal as well as creating opportunities for informal education. Under this program, SOPISDEW implements both humanitarian and non-humanitarian interventions to support education through specific projects and activities.
For following projects and activities are ongoing
- Offering child protection (CP) and psychosocial support (PSS) services by creating safe spaces for children to have access to knowledge, values, skills, problem solving and creativity using diverse adaptive learning methodologies.
- Implementing Education in Emergencies (EiE) through integration of formal learning into non-formal learning methods such as Distance Learning including IT Homeschooling and E-learning services.
Non-humanitarian intervention involves regular community development activities supporting community-based and grassroots development through promoting education as follows:
- Supporting the efforts of development stakeholders such as parents and teachers through PTAs (Parents Teachers Associations), the State through the ministry of basic education and the local government through the councils.
