1.        BACK GROUND;

Save the Children has been working in Somaliland for more than 60 years with offices in Borama, Burao and Hargeisa. We implement different programs for the Children who need support through our humanitarian and long-term development work in Health, Nutrition, Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH), Education, Food Security and Livelihoods (FSL), Child Protection and Child Rights Governance.

Save the Children has been at the forefront of the emergency response in Somaliland during humanitarian crisis like drought; and with the COVID-19 Pandemic, we scaled up the response to respond to the challenges brought about by  drought and COVID19.


Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in December 2019, the pandemic has created humanitarian and socio-economic crises in an unprecedented way, touching nearly all countries and communities across the world. Somaliland is one of the countries in sub Saharan Africa that has been affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Somaliland reported a total of 4703 cases so far and, given the rapid pace of the virus and inadequate access to testing, the numbers could be higher. One of the areas most affected by the COVID-19 Crisis is children’s learning and education in general.

To address and mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on education, the Somaliland Ministry of Education and Science (MoES) has closed all learning institutions (including schools and universities) effective April 12, 2021 and extended the closure of the next academic or school year until 3rd July 2021 As the result, 1,516 schools are closed and 257,340 children and adolescents (115,249 girls) are not attending school. This has posed increased pressure on parents to engage their children in productive activities at home.

The Somaliland COVID-19 Response program, funded by Global Partnership for education will contribute to the implementation of the basic education response strategy plan developed by the Somaliland MOES, the existing education programs both funded by GPE and EU and other on-going education programs supported by the education sector coordination members are also participating the implementation of the MOES strategic plan to improve the quality of education.

The program’s immediate interventions mitigate and respond to the effects of school closure by ensuring learning continuity. It also supports education systems to fully recover and ensure continued quality learning and sustained interventions with long-term potential.

The overall program objective is to support and ensure continued learning and well-being of children during and after school closures and strengthen education system recovery and resilience.

Horumarinta Elmiga III (Education for Empowerment through Cohesive and Harmonized System) is three-year (January 2019 – December 2021) education project funded by the European Union has outcomes including increasing access to equitable and inclusive basic education for children as well as Improved learning outcomes for boys and girls in school.
