Primary and lower secondary education
No child may be out of school, even not in emergencies. ZOA offers support to stakeholders in building schools, training teachers and awareness raising among parents. We focus on getting more girls to school and make sure that they have safe access to water and sanitation. Girls in crisis are often subjected to human rights violations because of their gender. It is therefore crucial for girls to go to school, as it is both a form of protection and empowerment. Moreover, ZOA pays attention to psychosocial needs of children who have undergone traumatic experiences. Part of peace education are life skills trainings in which young children learn how to deal with conflicts.
