The foundation of a community’s future

Expanding educational opportunities is vital for recovery after a crisis and can help transform affected communities. At IsraAID, we work to ensure vulnerable children can access education and to support education systems as they develop resilience and prepare for future disasters.

When disasters hit, education systems are always affected. In the immediate aftermath, schools often serve as temporary shelters for evacuees and any form of regular schooling is typically disrupted. Bringing children back to daily education is essential for their needs and for communities to rebuild; however, dealing with the impact of an emergency on students and staff members, and how to return them to school, are both short- and long-term challenges.

IsraAID’s global education work focuses on disaster risk reduction and psychosocial support within education systems. IsraAID also specializes in access to education following disasters, daily lessons, and informal education activities.

“It’s our job to ensure that the school community is supporting children in as many ways as possible as they transition back to a sense of normalcy.”

“Returning to school represents so much more than mathematics, spelling and reading. It also allows children, parents, teachers, and communities to come back together, to learn and grow.”
