conflict-affected children are without ​access to basic education.

The decade-long conflict in Nigeria’s northwest has resulted in widespread displacement, violations of international humanitarian and human rights law, protection risks, and a deepening humanitarian crisis, which has had a devastating impact on safe access to quality learning.

Some children struggle more than others. 

Children and adolescents lack the fundamental literacy and numeracy (FLN) skills as well as transferrable skills required for the transition to productive life opportunities. This is especially true for children from low-income homes, as well as females and disabled children.

The 14 years-long conflict in Nigeria’s northeast has resulted in widespread displacement, violations of international humanitarian and human rights law, protection risks, and a deepening humanitarian crisis, which has had a devastating impact on safe access to quality learning.

Other Achievements

Window 2

The capacity of 973

teachers was built on the TaRL Language Learning from Familiar to Formal (L2F2) approach through a 10-day training to facilitate the implementation of TaRL during the 2022-2023 academic year.
Window 2

371 School-Based Management Committee (SBMC)

members now have improved knowledge on child safeguarding and are taking direct actions to ensure that children are adequately protected in schools, communities and beyond in Borno and Yobe states.
Window 2

The project continued providing support

to states to operationalize the Safe School Declaration (SSD). 744 SBMC members, educational staff and community members acquired knowledge to improve safety and security in and around schools. Additionally, an assessment of children’s and adolescents’ safety was conducted in 54 focus schools and revealed that 95 per cent of children feel safe in school.
Window 2

Two technical teams (one per state)

were formed to provide support to government officials to operate the Teacher Management Information System (TMIS). The members comprise of SUBEBs, Ministries of Education (MoEs), Teaching Service Board and Local Government Education Authority (LGEA) Education Management Information System (EMIS) officers from Borno and Yobe states.
Window 2

UNICEF collaborated with

the Centre for International Training and Outreach (CITO) Institute for Educational Measurement to improve the practice and use of formative assessments in Borno and Yobe states (and by extension Nigeria). Support was provided to Borno and Yobe SUBEBs to build the capacity of 648 teachers (38 per cent women) with improved knowledge of the administration and interpretation of formative assessments developed in three core-curriculum primary school subjects (mathematics, English and science). The materials have been uploaded on the Nigeria Learning Passport (NLP) portal to encourage the use of the digital platform by teachers, learners and parents across the country.
Window 2

A total of 172 head teachers

and other education officials acquired the skills to operate the EduTrac system. All the target schools have been provided with mobile phones, and a control room has been set up at the SUBEB EMIS Department to coordinate and support the implementation of EduTrac activities.

Conflicts, climate crises, disasters, poverty, and, now, a global public health crisis have a devastating impact on the right to education of millions of people.

Children living in emergency contexts are not only facing the immediate dangers of crisis but also the long-term risk of being excluded from educational opportunities, which can further exacerbate their vulnerability and limit their future prospects.​

​ ​PLANE works to ensure access to foundational learning for marginalized, conflict-affected children and support the recovery of systems to enable their continued access and retention. ​

Conflicts, climate crises, disasters, poverty, and now COVID-19, a global public health crisis have a devastating impact on the right to education of millions of children.

Children living in emergency contexts are not only facing the immediate dangers of these crises, but also the long-term risk of being excluded from educational opportunities, which can further exacerbate their vulnerabilities and limit their future prospects.

When children are educated, entire communities benefit.
