Responding to the emergency: a priority!
Central African Republic is one of the poorest countries in the world, with a forgotten humanitarian crisis. Serious human rights violations persist. Violence endangers the lives of children who lack everything in this country where inequalities are enormous and where the civil war (since 2013) has greatly deteriorated basic social services.
Faced with this situation, SOS Children’s Villages and its partners have launched an integrated education and protection project focused on strengthening and continuing access for the most vulnerable children, victims of this political crisis, to quality education in a safe, protective, balanced and inclusive environment.
October 2020 – March 2022 (Phase 1)
May 2022 – April 2025 (Phase 2)
5.000 pupils, including 2.085 vulnerable girls, students of the Kokoro II school.
2,070 of these pupils who receive special support for their studies: home follow-up, tutoring courses and provision of school kits
36 members of the teaching staff, including 22 women
15 members of the Community Child Protection Network, including 10 women, and 10 members of the Association des Parents d’Elèves, including 3 women
5 psychosocial workers and 4 school support workers.
The objective of this project is to contribute to a better protection of rights and to the improvement of the learning conditions of girls and boys in the Kokoro II school located in the south-west of the capital, Bangui.
The main activities of this project were the renovation and construction of classrooms, latrines and a fence around the drinking water point and the school grounds. This work aimed to improve the safety of the premises, strengthen the capacities of teachers, raise parents’ awareness of better education and the protection of children, and fight against the Covid-19 pandemic and to strengthen community mechanisms for the protection of children.
