The idea following the Emergency Education Program is to create an efficient educational system. This system will be practical in educational emergencies, arising as a result of insurgency, war and/or displacement. Children are the most affected in adverse circumstances as such and are in most cases deprived of safety and quality education.
The ARO EEP serves to reach children in distraught regions whose education have been inhibited. it is our belief that no child’s education is worth being put on hold for whatever reason, since it follows that their futures are impeded and opportunities lost. We ensure that they are provided with adequate resources required to help them deal with negative exposure, strongly fighting for children’s right to education and protection. We understand the importance of a solid young foundation for every child, so we took the initiative to intervene and counter the disadvantage in the children’s lives and better their chance at a fair start.
AROEEP is made completely free to encourage maximum participation and curb any monetary deterrent preventing the children from participating. School supplies, which include uniforms, bags, books, stationery among others are provided for the children upon enrollment.
We kick off this program by starting with disenfranchised bright minds in internally Displaced People Camps (IDP CAMPS). A child needs to be loved, nurtured and protected in a non-violent and stimulating environment to develop invaluable skills and recover from adversity. Over 45% of children in conflict zones do net get the love, nurture and motivation they need. This deteriorates the child’s development and growth as well as society’s advancement.
We understand the importance of a solid young foundation for every child, so we took the initiative to intervene and counter the disadvantage in the children’s lives and better their chance at a fair start. We cannot let children lose their futures.
Classes at the ARO foundation Emergency Education Program are conducted in fully ventilated modern tents, equipped with adequate furniture to facilitate the teaching and the learning process. These tents are only temporary to enable the children continue learning before they can return to a fully structured school. Efficient and resilient educational and relief staff/volunteers are dispatched to affected regions for the implementation of the program.
