Besides the formal education, SAFE is fully engaged in non-formal education (NFE), emergency education, alternative primary education and second-chance education for those who missed education opportunities at the right time. As every other child living in a stable environment, children in emergency are entitled to have access to basic education so that the education in emergency is as important for the child in emergency as food and water without which he/she can hardly survive.
With the intention of alleviating traumatic experiences facing displaced children, SAFE (in partnership with several INGO) has implemented emergency education response in several regions in the South-Central Somalia including Banadir, Lower Shabelle, Middle Shabelle and Gedo regions. In the process of delivering emergency education in IDP settlements, SAFE has mobilized community education committees (CECs), trained them, and with their support recruited and trained teachers for the IDP schools where their children are taught.
The education in emergency (EiE) helps the children in the emergency from the very negative impacts of the conflicts and helps them to become positive force for peace. The following table shows the number of children in emergency SAFE reached in collaboration with the international organizations whose names are in the table.
