Hope: A brief introduction to Save the Children Denmark’s alternative basic education and skills training in Somaliland and Puntland, Somalia

A brief introduction to Save the Children Denmark’s alternative basic education and skills training in Somaliland and Puntland, Somalia. While the idea behind alternative basic education is to create access to primary and non-formal education for vulnerable children, especially girls, it is also designed to create the necessary basis for participation in skills training, the aim of which is to improve the livelihood of disadvantaged youth and women. By providing youth with necessary life skills, education, a trade and a link to employment, they can contribute meaningfully to their own development and the country’s well-being.
