This program aims at encouraging and motivating children from the displaced communities to have zeal in obtaining education. The provision of basic education to children, women, and youths is aimed at contributing to the reduction of illiteracy in the IDP camps and marginalized communities enabling the beneficiaries to qualify to pursue skills training programs hence break the cycle of poverty.


Children's Rights and Protection

The protection of children is crucial to their survival, health, and wellbeing. Unfortunately, millions of children are exploited, abused, and are victims of violence. Every day, children are forced to work on farms, on the streets, as prostitutes, casual workers, or domestic help. Abuse, exploitation, and violence – disgraceful as they are – usually occur in private. Only time reveals the consequences: children uneducated, unhealthy, and impoverished.
