Six prefabricated classrooms were installed in earthquake-hit Khoy county
Four schools in earthquake-hit Khoy County, West Azerbaijan, were equipped with new learning spaces. Three of these schools are in hard to reach villages and one in Khoy city. UNICEF, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education (MoE), facilitated the procurement, delivery, installation, and equipping of these prefabricated classrooms to ensure quality education for the affected children.
The classrooms are constructed from thermal isolating material and fully equipped with standard learning equipment and proper air conditioning systems for all seasons.
Furthermore, more than 750 children studying at these schools will receive student kits containing essential stationary items for the new scholastic year.
In the next step, UNICEF plans to rehabilitate 12 schools in earthquake-affected, hard-to-reach villages in Khoy county to enhance the learning environment and opportunities for children.
In the aftermath of the earthquake, UNICEF continues to support the affected children and their families by supplying hygiene items and baby kits, providing financial support to reconstruct damaged houses, and improving sanitation facilities.
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
