The global objective of this call for proposals is to expand education and training opportunities, contributing to poverty reduction within a peaceful, secure and democratic Somalia.

Priorities and funded actions:

– To support the delivery of good-quality education and training for the target population in Somalia;
– Increased access to good-quality education for all children, youth and adults; 
– Increased participation of youth and adults, also from vulnerable groups, in technical and vocational education and training; 
– Capacity of education institutions, administrations and systems strengthened.

– Restoring/expanding basic and secondary education opportunities.
– Ensure that education is being delivered in safe learning environments (child protection) with participation of communities.
– Production and distribution of good teaching and learning materials.
– Develop education services in refugee areas of return namely Kismayu, Baidoa and Mogadishu to create incentives for voluntary repatriation of Somali refugees living in the neighbouring countries.

Among financed actions
– Construction of new, reconstruction and rehabilitation of old/destroyed school buildings and classrooms, particularly in newly liberated areas, and in overcrowded urban centres; and including separate latrines for girls and boys as well as girl-friendly spaces (the latter mainly for upper-primary and secondary education); 
– Provision and maintenance of furniture, equipment, libraries, laboratories (mainly for secondary education), and teaching and learning materials to schools and learning centres;
– Teacher professional development, particularly also relating to female teachers, i.e. teacher training, follow-up and mentorship support, supervision of teaching staff etc.;
– Special and flexible education support to hard-to-reach/marginalized communities, e.g. pastoralists, agro-pastoralists, IDPs, returning refugees, girls and women, children/youth with special needs, working children and adults with none or low literacy levels
