EDUCATION - Care & Protection of Children in Emergencies. A Field Guide

The "Field Guide to Education Programs in Emergencies" is one in a series compiled by Save the Children (SC) as part of its Children and War Capacity Building Initiative. The SC Children in Crisis Unit developed this initiative in order to support SC staff in responding to the priority care and protection needs of children and adolescents during new emergencies and in situations of chronic armed conflict or displacement. This field guide is intended as a reference for SC staff and partners in designing and implementing education programmes in situations of crisis and is meant to be useful both for staff who have limited experience with education in emergency situations and for staff who are experienced in such programmes but wish to improve their understanding of particular components. The guide is an important one for SC to be putting forward at this time, as more attention is given to education as an essential protection mechanism and developmental priority for children in emergencies and crisis.
