Back to school support for children affected by Tropical Cyclone Evan
Tents that will act as temporary learning spaces, and School-in-a-Box kits to equip the temporary classrooms, were part of the support provided by UNICEF to the Ministry of Education to help get children back to school. In addition, back packs containing stationery sets are being provided to assist with the educational needs of primary school students affected by Tropical Cyclone Evan.
“UNICEF recognises the importance of education in emergencies. Education eases the emotional impact of conflict and disasters by giving stability, structure and hope for the future. Schools provide a safe and protective environment and is a means of restoring a sense of normalcy to the lives of children,” said Ms. Isabelle Austin, UNICEF Pacific Deputy Representative and Officer-in-Charge.
