Quality education

We promote a girl and boy-friendly inclusive school environment through the implementation of School Improvement Plans, strengthening parent and  teacher associations and contributing to the capacity development of teachers.

Early childhood care

Through our ‘Fair Start for All’ programme we integrate health, nutrition, and intellectual stimulation, and provide opportunities for exploration and active learning for children aged 0-6.  It also engages families and communities in promoting children’s healthy development.

This programme also provides social and emotional care in order to help children to realise their full potential.

Economic security

This programme is designed to address unemployment and social-political disempowerment among youths, who form the majority of the population.

We support life skills education and innovative approaches to skills acquisition and economic empowerment to promote the participation of youth in community development.


This programme crosscuts all other country programmes and contributes to the creation of safe and protective environments for children including in emergency situations such as refugee camps.

We promote participatory opportunities for children to have the right to participate in issues that affect their lives.

We also support for birth registration systems and work with partners to strengthen children, youth and NGO networks and coalitions.
