It will improve the quality of teaching and learning, increase the wellbeing of children and teachers, provide teacher training, ongoing school-based support and professional development, and raise the knowledge, skills and abilities for inclusive education of local and education district government officials, caregivers and community members. By the end of year 3, this program will have reached 14,040 OOSC aged 6 to 14, and bring the benefits of improved community and parental engagement, safer school environments, better trained and supported teachers to an estimated additional 16,200 children; furthermore, 2,025 School Father and Mother Councils (FMCs) members and 756 teachers will receive training and support.
