Quality education in English begins for refugee children in CRRF roll-out country Djibouti
Quality education in English begins for refugee children: 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. From now on, the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training (MENFOP) will oversee education for refugee children. The event follows the milestone signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the MENFOP and UNHCR just two weeks ago, where the two parties pledged to provide quality education to refugees in the form of the Djiboutian curriculum translated into English, and attentive teacher training, as well as pave the way for the recognition of previously-earned certificates. Approximately 398 first grade students in the Ali Addeh and Holl-Holl camps will now benefit at the onset of this plan; it is expected to cover students up to the 11th grade in the near future.
