Education Programmes

Education is a fundamental element in the ability of children to meet their developmental potential.  It promotes their mental, physical and psychosocial health, and offers a sense of normalcy, even in times of conflict.  Schools are ideal for encouraging awareness of issues which place children at risk and increase the likelihood of child separation, such as HIV/AIDS prevention and child abuse.
