Post-Conflict/Post-Disaster Areas

Education is easily disrupted when a crisis breaks out. In the wake of a conflict or disaster, countries often focus on restructuring government and repairing infrastructure, while restoring education is an afterthought.

World Education works with local and national governments to re-establish the education system as they transition from conflict and crisis to development. We strengthen the ability of organizations and individuals to rebuild social infrastructure and accumulate social capital; this helps to ensure that affected regions re-emerge as suitable places to live, learn, and work. We also implement psychosocial and protection support to address the needs of those affected by a crisis--particularly women and children. Additionally, World Education strives to mitigate conflict, creating a sustainable network of agents of peace who will influence the behaviors of key actors to promote and choose peace.
