쓰나미 이후, 솔로몬제도 어린이의 교육과 재활

* UNICEF: After the tsunami, education and recreation for Solomon Islands children
* 01 Apr 2007

Young children living in the western part of the Solomon Islands have been faced with tough living conditions …and a sense of insecurity since the tsunami hit in April of this year. For many children, their schools as well as their homes were washed away in the devastating tsunami which was triggered by a massive earthquake. Catastrophic events like this can leave children with a significant gap in their education unless something is done to bring both students and teachers back to school as soon as possible.
SOT: Mary Lumbina, Primary School teacher: “I have 29 children in the class but after the earthquake some few never come. But today the number of the students is up. May be the games….”
Immediately after the tsunami UNICEF, in partnership with the Provincial Educational Department, arranged for the distribution of 80 school-in-a-box kits, over 100 recreational kits, and temporary shelters for learning spaces.
SOT: Raewyn Magu, Early Child Education Coordinator, Department of Education, Western Province: “This is the recreational box or recreational kit provided by UNICEF to help support the healing process from the tsunami and the earthquake.”
These kits are important for children who not only lost their sense of safety, but their toys too.
SOT: Dalcy Sito, Chief Education Officer, Western Province: “It has an impact on them because they’ve been left alone – after the tsunami and the earthquake - wandering around, doing nothing. And so this is used to putting them back into a system where they will think about school more informally and when they are ready we will put them back into the formal system.” [natsound: “shells and fish”]
Now the task ahead is to rebuild the education system. A formidable task in this remote corner of the Solomon Islands.
