CECs works closely with the education management team in the schools, and also works with Regional Educational officers during coordination meetings held at educational offices located with ministry sub offices, they follow up the teachers how to work, collecting missing students, they some mobilize community with the important of the education.
Thanks and regards
Towfiiq Education Project Officer
Thank you for adding more information about the Towfiq Community Education Project. Can you tell us some more about the challenges you see? What have you observed about why students are missing, for example? We hear a lot, in the United States, about how often girls are not enrolled in school at the same rate as boys. Is that one of the issues you see?
Thanks again and I look forward to learning more. Best wishes for your project,
Tell us a success story from your work. How does education play a role in this success?
More than 300 adult women in the poorest areas of Somalia have benefited from our innovative education programs. Investing in girls and women is a proven way to improve their education.In IDPs areas girls can't afford to go to school.
So we provide a financial resources to overcome that barrier and then work through national and local systems - with parents, teachers, government officials, and traditional authorities - to deliver them. We do not set up parallel systems, or bring in workers from outside. Our programs are devised, managed, and monitored by the community, and all of our Africa offices are staffed by nationals of that country.
With access to education we can do amazing things: launch businesses, become health workers, run schools, and lead governments. But education is not freely available to everyone - and in many parts of the world girls are the first to be excluded from it.
Your work is invaluable, congratulations and keep it up! I'd like to know more about your short and long term goals.
