Education

Goal;   Improved access to quality primary and secondary education to Nuba mountains

Nuba Mountains like many post war areas have suffered many years neglect in accessing basic services such as education. The 2005 survey indicated that 78% of Nuba population were illiterate. Many adults and children have missed opportunities to attend school. NRRDO and the Nuba people are committed to improving access to quality and appropriate education with a focus to primary and tertiary education as well as adult education. Even in the face of the current crisis the Nuba people are more determined than even ever to access education for their people.

‘’ we will learn even if in the caves or under trees ‘remarked  one elder during the strategic planning process.

The Nuba people see education as key to their liberation and are committed to make all the sacrifices to have their children access quality and relevant education

Objectives;

  1.  Mitigate declining enrollment and retention of primary and secondary schools from the current rate of school dropout 45% to 20%
  2. Enhanced the capacity of Education Sector
  3. Increased   literacy  among  youth
  4. Improved quality and quantity of national teachers

These will be achieved through the following strategies;

i.      Lobbying and advocacy: With donor partners to support education to all children (without discrimination) and adults.

ii.      strengthen managerial and  institutional capacity for education managers at various     levels

iii.      promote accelerated learning  and vocational training for  drop-outs

iv.       support teachers’ training

NRRDO interventions

  1. Emergency Humanitarian support ;  Save lives and protect Livelihoods and improve food security. Cash transfer, food distribution, NFI distribution, Protection and disaster risk reduction, seeds and tools provision, groups income generating schemes, blacksmith support, water supply, animal health service.  Currently 300,000 people are in dire need emergency humanitarian relief. In addition to food and Non-Food Item kits, continuing a massive, regionally-innovative cash distribution programme – which saw $2.5 million given to 12,000 households last year – will contribute to saving lives. Self-reliance must be built at the same time through measures to stabilise farming and household level food production
  2. Peace Building and Governance;  The Nuba People’s Conference collectively defined key political, socio-economic and cultural resolutions. Now, we will strengthen governance institutions and train leaders to make sure aspirations are met. Civic education will seek to tackle underlying causes of conflict  with in the Arabs and the Nuban.
  3. Primary health: Improved  access to basic health services.  In the context of severe drug and health personnel shortages and the bombing of hospitals, NRRDO is distributing emergency health kits to clinics. We need to rehabilitate 177 centres and build the capacity to respond to disease-outbreaks and soaring malnutrition.
  4. Education:  Improved access to quality primary and secondary education in Nuba. Beyond relief, education is the Nuba people’s number one priority. They will not accept another lost generation after the last war left 78% of the population illiterate. NRRDO run 179 primary schools for almost 40,000 pupils. But this still leaves a further 40,000 children out of school. We need to stabilize, then scale up, and bring a sense of normality to childhoods that are anything but
  5. Gender and Women development: Inclusion and active participation of women, girls, men and youth on issues affecting their lives in Nuba Mountains. Women bear the brunt of war through marginalization, increased care demands and inability to earn income. We will provide psycho-social support and business training, promote adult literacy and gender rights
  6. Voice of Community Radio: Improved  coverage, scope  and quality of radio programs on education , health and other social issues.
