Drivers of change in safe schools

Source(s):  Plan International

This document summarizes the Safe Schools programme implementation in Indonesia, Cambodia and Nepal. This programme uses knowledge, innovation and education to build a culture of safety and resilience through a range of curricular and co-curricular activities in schools and communities, it contributes to the achievement of the HFA Priority for Action 3, of which a number of positive results can be identified and measured against the four indicators under this Priority.

South-East Asia has a high incidence of disasters caused by natural hazards, which have only intensified over the past two decades. As school attendance and enrollment is high across many countries in the region, it is crucial that school safety and resilience to disaster events become a focus for programming.

The Safe Schools programme is already being replicated within these three countries and beyond. In Indonesia, certain districts are replicating, funding and implementing Safe Schools initiatives, while in Cambodia, the Ministry of Education Youth and Sport and partner NGOs are planning to replicate under the Safe School Guidelines.
