He also stated that the objective of the meeting is project closure and to discuss the way forwardto proceed the education voluntarily till the next project. Abdullahi asked the community what they have achieved the project.
Hassan Ali: the activity we have here is a contribution between community, IP (SCC) and the donor, every partner has his own roleand this is community's role to keep children in place during the gap so we have to feel ownership and run our schools during the gap to support our children.
Then the community members were asked what achievements they have got from this project, the challenges& gaps faced during the project process and way forwardor how to overcome after the project completes.
The CEC members stated the following achievements, challenges/gaps and way forward in turn starting achievements:
Achievements:
•Improvements in the academic level of the target students in the projects and we can prove this through the tests that were performed at the beginning and the end of the project; therefore, we have got quality educationduring the project process where more and more children moved to upper grades. Children enrolled in 2019 from grade one now can be enrolled in grade four in lower primary schools.
•We have got child protectionwith focal points where the children is kept from harm, playing games, child soldiering, and moving round and parents got the skills to deal with their children in a non-violent manner and also allowed for improved relations between the parents, the students, and the schools.
•Since the education in emergency started, many students were transferred to formal education in private schools 25 of whom attended grade 8 exam of this year;and other8 secondary school students attended form four final examsin this school year 2020/21.
•One of SCC students completed university (bachelor's degree) and now is midwife.
•One of our students is a teacher in IDP schools, other works in MCH center in IDP camps, allthat is the fruits of emergency education projects run by SCC during last decade.
•In addition to that 90% of students in school now are literate and help their illiterate parents reading messages and using electronic voucher used in mobiles (EVC Plus).
Challenges:
SCC asked the members why all school-age children do not attend to schools while there are more school-age children in the camp? And how we can overcome this issue?
The members replied to the following points:
•IDP families have expectations of school feeding as you already started feeding parents did not enroll after that project. Donors are the main factor of school children decrease because they started feeding with short term and stopped as parents still expect feeding again.
•IDP parents prefer bread earning instead of education.
•Children's IQ is very high, but the problem is the parents that send them support their younger kids in home as they search family income or send children wash dishes or sweep and clean houses for other families to get some money.
•Talking about child labor problems Marian Haji from Bilkheyr school stated that 10-year-old girlwent washing dishes for families and got raped one of the houses she has been working;and later the victim died due to the incident.
•During to COVID-19 parents could not get work (washing clothes for families by women, digging holes & building by men) due to lock down.
•Some CEC members suggested to move the families that do not send their children to schoolaway from the camp; but there was other opposite concern which is that there are some camps that do not have enough families that welcome such families.
Gaps:
•There are no syllabus grades (1-4) of the new Somali curriculum in the schools.
•Water tanks worn out and leaking therefore need to be replaced.
•Education materials also needed.
Way Forward:
Talking camp leaders, CEC members & Headteachers about the way forward to cover the gap, the members suggested the following points:
•We used to run the schools after the project completes and we are ready to continue the education till we get extension and the teacher that does not accept to work with us during the gap will not be back to school after when we get extension.
•Some CEC members suggested to replace the timetable till the next project and get salary for the teachers using two teachersin a daywhile other teachers search their daily income.
•To sign agreement between camp leaders, teachers, Quranic school teachers and IDP families stating that every family in the camp must send their children to school, Quranic school teachers to send the children early to school to get chance for formal education, to work hired teachers after the project completes and camp leaders manage transports and other facilities for the teachers and school.
•CEC members suggested to prepare lower primary certificate for grade four to feel school parents a promotion of their children and keep going to school after the project completes. And to feelother parents that did not send their children to school disappointed.
•CEC members also suggested to construct two more classrooms for upper primary classes grade 5 to 8 at least every two to three schools with one upper primary to get free of charge upper primary education for IDP families because the fee is between $12 to $18 in private schools and IDP families cannot afford to avoid drop out after lower primary.
Agenda #3. AOB
Members from AL-HIDAYA, & BULOWARBO Schools which was not part of this project presented that the camp leader (Nadifo), did not give up the education after the last project completed but proceed to support 600 students in the schools with school uniform; when SCC supported these schools with teacher incentives, rehabilitation of facilities & furniture, school bags distribution and drinking water. These schools AL-HIDAYA, & BULOWARBO were invited in the meeting as a role model for other camp leaders to contribute their support to the schools.
Agenda #4. Conclusion (Prayer)
