This project provided emergency education including psychosocial and recreational support and survival skills for Palestinian refugee children whose education had been impacted by the conflict in Syria. It employed techniques to map out of school children (OOSC); provided psychosocial and survival-skills support systems, study plans and self-learning materials in core curriculum subjects; used alternative education for OOSC; created a communication systems for security alerts; and developed a monitoring system to secure visibility and evaluate programme performance. The support of children in a context of continuing armed conflict includes giving children psychosocial support through structured and age-specific recreational activities and identifying traumatised children and referring them to psychosocial counselors. It also includes the delivery of learning content adapted to the violent situation, including core curriculum subjects like environmental health, personal health and conflict resolution as well. Another major project activity was developing a strong system of data collection and analysis of the situation within the education sector to better support displaced Palestinian children in Syria or in neighbouring countries. This included data on children’s psychosocial needs, disaster risk, educational capacities, resources, vulnerabilities and challenges to upholding the right to education for all affected groups.
