The Federal Government on Monday will launch an education advocacy programme for children displaced by Boko Haram in Yobe, Adamawa and Borno states.
This was in a statement by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Internally Displaced Persons, Dr. Mariam Masha on Sunday.
Masha explained that the children in IDP camps in those states will be involved in writing and speech competition.
She said, “The competition is open to all school-aged children (8 -18 years old) currently receiving various forms of education in the Internally Displaced Persons camps and host communities in Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states.
“This advocacy model will engage the children in conversations concerning their educational plans, intending to create a sense of involvement and enhance the success and sustainability of their education.
“The programme, tagged ‘2016 Protecting Education Advocacy Challenge, PEACH’, will involve school-aged children residing in the camps and host communities across the three states of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe, and will be conducted in three stages.”
