SOUNDBITE, Niki Abrishamian, UNICEF Myanmar Chief of Education:

If children are not going back to school, especially after such a tragedy, and there is such a delay in going back to school between two to three months, the likelihood of them going back to school will become much less. And there’s a greater chance for them to lose a whole year of schooling.

Well, the magnitude is great. It’s 4106 schools altogether have been damaged and, meaning bringing them back up and running in a timely manner, of course it will take time. So because of the magnitude of the damage, what we need to do is prioritize and look at how we can respond quickly. So the strategy that UNICEF has taken to date with the Ministry of Education is to identify schools that initially have lost only their roofing, you know, the roofs, and do the immediate repair. And then also look at the schools that have totally collapsed and set up temporary learning spaces for children so they can start schooling while the construction and the long-term work can get started.

We are hoping that about 1000 temporary safe learning spaces can be established in the delta region and at the same time about 1000 schools can be repaired between 2-6 weeks after the delivery of the roofing sheets to them and other supplies.

UNICEF is providing an essential learning package, which means a backpack for children, exercise books, pencils, ruler and the essential things. In addition to crayons and papers to give them also…respond to their psychosocial needs as well. And then, also has prepared a school kit for the schools in terms of blackboard, chalk, paper and registration books for the teachers to just give them the chance to get started.

An important element that UNICEF is also working is looking at the psychosocial needs of children and teachers as well. Many have been affected. Many have lost their families. Many children have been traumatized. So UNICEF is also in partnership with others, is trying to put together a first, initial tips for teachers initially that will help the teachers recognize the emotions and the feelings of the children and being able to, with some key activities, to respond to these emotions. While later on, we will be working on putting together the materials for the training and then hopefully working with the teachers to better respond to the psychosocial needs of children.

The school year in Myanmar starts on June 2nd. The schools that have managed, when the cyclone happened, which was May 2nd, obviously the children were not in school, this gave some time…
