In November 2011, Plan launched a 2-year project to ensure children who live in areas at high risk of disasters can access education safely at all times. The Strengthening Children’s Voices in Promoting Safe Schools project sees Plan working with civil society in communities in Cambodia, China and Indonesia to help minimise the impact disasters have on children's right to quality education.
The results of our research, presented here, give us an insight into school safety from the perspective of children, based on their experiences and those of the communities in which they live.
