Quality & Inclusive Education

Quality inclusive education is a fundamental part of the new Sustainable Development Goal agenda. 

In Somaliland, inclusive education refers to a ‘system that affords all learners access to free and compulsory basic education and secondary education of real quality, followed by the opportunity to continue with lifelong education and training, so enhancing their personal development and contributing to Somaliland’s cultural development, socio-economic growth, and global competitiveness.’ 

In Somaliland, inclusive education refers to children with special education needs who attend mainstream schools. We work to address the challenges of thousands of children to access integrated and inclusive education in hard-to-reach areas of Somaliland. 

We work with the Ministry of Education to improve inclusive education and promote enrolment, particularly for girls and disabled students. We build gender and disability-friendly schools and toilets. We work with communities to increase their knowledge of the value of girls’ education.
