AADSOM has been implementing education programs in Somalia for the last decade and is currently working in Puntland and South Central. AADSOM’s educational program supports not only formal education but also provides Vocational Skills Trainings which empowers the youth to produce work-related skills trained youth to the society.
We seek to integrate education with other programs that we’re implementing in Somalia, like child protection, child rights governance, school health/nutrition, as well as child-centred risk reduction in order to bring about a meaningful impact on children’s lives. Through our education projects, we help build and renovate schools, provide teaching and learning materials, train teachers. We work with communities to encourage their involvement in school management and enable children to participate in decision making on matters affecting their rights through children’s activities. A particular focus has been on developing alternative basic education program that enables pastoralist and urban working children and those who failed to enrol at the right age to catch up on the curriculum.
