Working Together for School Safety

Working Together for School Safety project aims to increase the resilience of children, communities, as well as government officials from education, protection and disaster management sectors in Nepal to be better prepared for and able to respond to natural hazards. The action builds on the learning from previous DIPECHOVIII implemented by the Child Centered Disaster Risk Reduction (CCDRR) consortium. The consortium worked with government to incorporate DRR into the School Sector Development Plan (SSDP) and Teacher Professional Development (TPD). The project has rolled out TPD module for teachers on school safety, which was piloted in 62 schools in six districts.

Funded by European Union Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid (ECHO), the project will work in Banke, Kailali and Baglung districts from May 2017 to October 2018. It is expected to reach over 25,000 people, 190 organizations and 122 schools.
