Support to Education for Refugees in Dadaab (SERD)

The Support to Education for Refugees in Dadaab (SERD) contributes to Save the Children’s global education strategy – “All children learn from a quality basic education” and was implemented between December 2012 and December 2015. The specific objective of SERD was to ensure the right to education is realized for children and young adults in the Dadaab refugee camps and the host community. The objectives of this project have been largely fulfilled and the case studies and testimonials show what impact it has had on children and young people living in Dadaab. However, a lot remains to be done to ensure that all the children in Dadaab access their right to education.

Dadaab refugee camp is home to over 330,000 refugees, of whom close to 60% are children and youth under the age of 18. Funded by the European Commission, SERD aimed to achieve the following results:

  • Equitable access to relevant formal and non-formal education and vocational training increased by 10% for refugees and by 5% in the host community by September 2014.
  • Improved quality of education through improved pedagogical skills of 240 teachers and 30 vocational trainers.
  • Enhanced awareness and capacity of School Management Committee (SMC) members in 4 refugee camps and host community schools and District Education Officers (DEOs) in two districts.
  • Improved Information Communication and Technology (ICT) literacy for 2,060 secondary and post-secondary students.
