About EAA

Opening up a world of education

Children love to learn. If they are denied access to knowledge, we also deny them the opportunity to change their lives for the better.


Waxbar Carurtaada II – Educate Your Children II

Calendar icon
Since 2013, EAC and CARE have been working together in Somalia via a range of education initiatives to reach some of the country’s most marginalised out of school children (OOSC). Through a new partnership project, EAC and CARE seek to enrol 57,600 more OOSC into quality primary education.
Waxbar Carurtaada II – Educate Your Children II

CARE has been providing emergency relief and lifesaving assistance to the Somali people since 1981. Its programmatic focus areas, in large part, consist of intervention in water and sanitation, sustainable pastoralism, civil society and media development, primary school education and teacher and vocational training.

The three-year joint EAC/CARE Waxbar Carurtaada II project will be implemented across 17 districts within the five Somalia regional states of Galmudug, Hirshabelle, Jubaland, South West and Puntland. The primary goal of the project is to ensure that 57,600 out of school children affected by instability, displacement, social exclusion and poverty have access and the opportunity to complete a quality primary education.

To address the primary education access barriers prevalent in Somalia, the Waxbar Carurtaada II project aims to strengthen local governance structures and community support around school safety, inclusivity and gender-sensitive education. Flexi-classes, remedial support and accelerated basic education (ABE) will also provide viable alternatives for learners unable to access education or attend regularly due to seasonal migration, domestic responsibilities and the need to partake in income-generating activities. Teachers will receive training, school supplies and salary support to assist and incentivise their pedagogical practice in the classroom. Furthermore, the project will rehabilitate schools and construct temporary schools to provide child-friendly learning spaces that will accommodate the projected increase in enrolment rates amongst marginalised groups, including girls and the extremely poor.
