Quality education under Ministry of Education and Vocational Training supervision begins for refugee children in CRRF roll-out country Djibouti
In October, 2017, Students of Ali Addeh, Djibouti’s largest refugee camp with over 15,600 inhabitants, celebrated the first day of the new agreement on education for refugees with an animated ceremony attended by hundreds of schoolchildren. The Ministry of Education and Vocational Training (MENFOP) has pledged to oversee education for all refugee children. The event follows the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the MENFOP and UNHCR where the two parties pledged to provide quality education certified by MENFOP to refugees. Approximately 398 first grade students in the Ali Addeh and Holl-Holl camps will participate in an officially certified programme. It is expected that MENFOP will address the needs of refugee students through the 11th grade in the near future.
