Education in Emergency Projects (Implemented from 2018-Date)

TLS Damasak

Herwa CDI partnered with Street Child of Nigeria and implemented two projects (Right to Learn (RTL) and Education Cannot Wait (ECW).

Project Name: Right to Learn
Principal Partner: Street Child of Nigeria
Duration: February to August 2018
Location: Dikwa and Mobbar

Project name: Education Cannot Wait
Principal Partner: Street Child of Nigeria
Donor: UNICEF/Education Cannot Wait
Objective of the Project: Provide education at the right level for vulnerable out of school children and children who need to catch up in the formal school system.
Duration: November 2018 to April , 2019


  • In both LGAs, the presence of super facilitators was not noticed. Particularly in Damasak, it was reported that the nominated super facilitator has no capacity to be able to provide the needed support and report back. For Dikwa, the SF is capable but seems he has tight schedules
  • Lack of training of education officers to provide mentorship and coaching to the CVTs has affected the quality of service provided and feedback.
  • Very few amongst the CVTs were able to develop good lesson plans from the scope and sequence.
  • Due to lack of uniforms, the mainstream learners felt they are second class learners in the formal schools as some children mocked them for lack of uniform which led to some personally withdrawing themselves from the school.
  • The TLS in both communities were not well protected. Some children in the community use to play around, which led to the destruction of the TLS materials like furniture and structure itself
  • The retained learners in all the TLS need to be taught, unfortunately the project has ended. There is therefore the need to find a way, to teach them to be able to pass so that they could be mainstreamed into the next phase.


  • The need to liaise with the education secretaries to nominate capable super facilitators with the passion to give support to the CVTs.
  • The need for refresher training, mentorship to education officers, and CVTs to provide qualitative education to the learners.


  • Discussion is ongoing between the State Agency for Mass Literacy and Herwa to engage the existing adult literacy teachers in the 2 project locations to provide teaching services to the learners and other out of school children.
  • The need to collaborate with SUBEB and LEAs to mainstream the learners that graduated from the TLS.
