Temporary Education/Home Schooling

When schools closed due to the Ebola Crisis, Fatu Sesay wasn’t ready to put her children’s education on pause. After organizing and leading classes for her kids and several neighborhood children, Fatu leads a mathematics lesson from her own home. Despite multiple postponements of school’s reopening, student’s learning has continued thanks outdoor classrooms like Fatu’s. However, children should soon be able to return to school on February 16, when schools are scheduled to restart thanks to USAID support. Through providing schools across the country with education kits and critical training in infection prevention measures, USAID is working closely with UNICEF and other education partners to ensure that schools reopen safely.
