‘Education in emergency and conflict contexts; examples and lessons learned from Save the Children’s current responses and programmes with a focus on the implementation of girls’ education in conflict-affected and fragile contexts’ – Charlotte Balfour-Poole (Senior Humanitarian Education Adviser, Save the Children)
This talk will outline some of the current examples of Save the Children’s programming in both emergency and conflict/protracted crises settings and will in particular, discuss their work on the Department for International Development’s Girls Education Challenge (GEC). The GEC is currently being implemented by Save the Children in 4 countries – Afghanistan Ethiopia , DRC and Mozambique. There will also be a discussion around some of the processes the team at Save the Children has worked through in developing their own girls’ education signature approach, recently tested in Niger and Afghanistan.
