  • Background of the Project

The Puntland State of Somalia as a Federal Member State is in the midst of momentous political, social, and economic transformation since its leaders declared the territory an autonomous region in 1998. The region has managed to maintain relative peace and security in recent years, which has enabled it to establish political and administrative institutions, basic social services, an active civil society, and a growing private enterprise community. In addition, much progress has been made in the education sector in the last few years. Despite these improvements, however, educational provision, participation, and completion in Puntland are among the lowest in the world. The GER for primary and secondary education as per the Ministry of Education and Higher Education(MoEHE) 2016/2017 EMIS stands at 58.2%(Girls: 54.4%; Boys:64.0%) and 16.3%( Girls; 12.7%; Boys: 19.7%) respectively.

Research and practice of acute and protracted crisis highlight how education can protect vulnerable children and youth by providing them with an appropriate environment within which to nurture their learning and psychosocial well-being. a) Many students succeed academically despite adverse economic conditions, homelessness and transitory situations, conflict-affected settings, social exclusion, and other overwhelming risks. Although the social and economic environment of a learner is a significant predictor of academic results, additional success factors are determined by the positive school and life outcomes of children and youth living in adverse contexts. These include individual factors (e.g., hope, purpose, social competence, problem-solving, and autonomy), b) environmental factors such as care, support systems, high expectations and opportunities for meaningful participation in school, family, and the community also goes a long way in determining the resilience of the community and the children, c) and institutional factors such as relevant policies, programs and resources for access with safety, learning with socio-emotional well-being, and productive and social transformation skills.
