Education in emergency situations and Child Protection for children affected by the conflict in Iraq
This programme provides a culturally appropriate and adequate access to education in emergency situations, as well as access to basic child protection services to children and adolescents affected by the conflict.
- Funding: ECHO
- Number of beneficiaries: 18,870 people
Based on a mobile approach developed by TGH, this action targets children affected by conflicts directly at their location of displacement, in order to facilitate their access to education and to the protection services they have been deprived of for months.
TGH continues to work with some of the children who have benefited from the latest ECHO-funded actions and who still need support.
TGH adapts its response capacity to the changing humanitarian context by including new children, especially the victims of the ongoing military offensive in the Mosul region. TGH supports children, their families and communities in their process of returning to their areas of origin, focusing on community activities for a longer-term impact made possible with the resettlement of communities.
The mobile approach is essential: it guarantees the capacity to adapt to a relatively unpredictable evolution of the situation (displacement of populations, deterioration in the security conditions) and access to beneficiaries sometimes at the margin of humanitarian action.
The intervention builds bridges between the temporary emergency situation and the rehabilitation phase by filling gaps in education and child protection arising from the humanitarian conditions of the population.
Through the mobile approach, the programme ensures immediate access to education in emergency situations, with an integrated approach that takes into account the general environment of the child to ensure his well-being. The whole family is considered and involved during the child care process. In order to anchor and sustain locally the intervention, TGH also develops a community approach to strengthen the resilience of local actors. A specific link will be ensured with the actors of public education - the Department of Education, school managers and teachers, for a gradual reintegration of out-of-school children into the formal education system.
