Education and Training
Millions of children across the developing world are not in school and thousands more may never have the chance to attend. This has a serious impact on their future, as education can break the cycle of poverty, leading to more opportunities for them and their families.
Islamic Relief works directly with communities to ensure our education programmes are relevant to their needs. Projects are aimed at both adults and children and include building and equipping schools, holding literacy classes and teacher training.
Education opens up opportunities in employment, and lowers the risk of exploitation. For example, literate farmers are able to sell their crops for a higher price.
Islamic Relief provides access to education or vocational training to provide a way out of the poverty trap. Islamic Relief has initiated a number of community-based education projects; working directly with the communities to ensure that the projects are sustainable and relevant to their needs.
Islamic Relief provides education and training through the following activities:
Constructing and rehabilitating classrooms and Development Education Centres.
Providing equipment for schools and other education centres.
Supporting school canteens in partnership with WFP, by providing food and kitchen utensils.
Training schools to manage their canteens using reports and stock sheets.
Providing administrative and financial training to school management committees.
Help provide an opportunity to children for a better life.
