The Education for Refugee Children Project targets around 20,226 refugee children as well as children from the host community in 10 primary and secondary government schools and adults in 6 literacy Centres in Sana'a ensuring that these schools are inclusive and support quality education. SDF education intervention aims to enable refugee children residing in the urban districts in Amanat Al-Asima and Sana’a with ability to provide services beyond Sana'a governorate to have increased access to formal and non-formal education and community-based inclusive protection mechanisms. The focus is on increasing the enrolment rate in primary and secondary education of refugee children. SDF targets 60 refugee youth aged 14-18 years in life skills and human resource activities. SDF also targets 100 refugee children and youth in six governmental literacy centres to increase the enrolment and retention rates in non-formal education and community-based inclusive protection mechanisms. In addition, SDF supports tertiary education students through managing around 47 protection scholarships for refugee students seeking higher education degrees. SDF plans to implement a composite strategy of education, including Educate A Child Special Project, Child Protection, community mobilisation and advocacy activities to create opportunities for the enrolment of more refugee children and to minimise the dropout rates for refugee children that attend these educational institutions. SDF builds the capacity of the teachers in these institutions so that their teaching approach is friendly for refugee and vulnerable children who have a range of problems within and outside schools; schools are child friendly, accessible for children with disabilities, have resource rooms for better learning and have trained teachers and children who show non-discriminatory attitudes.
