Summary

Typhoon Haiyan is the strongest typhoon ever to make landfall anywhere in the world. Tens of thousands of schools and daycare centers were either damaged or converted to evacuation centers in the aftermath of the storm, disrupting the education and care of over 5 million children. To ensure children return to protective and quality learning environments and regain a sense of normalcy, UNICEF is mobilizing education support and supplies to the hardest-hit areas of the Philippines.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

12,000 schools were either damaged or converted to evacuation centers, with an additional 9,648 daycare centers affected by the Typhoon, disrupting the education and care for close to 5.4 million children.

How will this project solve this problem?

To ensure children return to protective and quality learning environments and regain a sense of normalcy, UNICEF is undertaking early recovery and reconstruction of schools and mobilizing education supplies and support to the most affected areas. These include tents, Early Childhood Development (ECD) kits, student school packs and teachers' packs as well as library kits and psychosocial support for children and teachers.

Potential Long Term Impact

$10,000 can provide 47 School-In-A-Box kits for 1,875 children. Even in the middle of a disaster, UNICEF can set up temporary classes in 72 hours by customizing School-in-a-Box Kits for local languages and select basic educational supplies that can be used anywhere in the world.
