Ethiopia’s Multi-Year Resilience Programme (MYRP 2020-2023) aims to improve learning through equitable access, crisis-sensitive and quality relevant education for 745,997 emergency-affected children (380,418 boys, 365,579 girls (including children living with disabilities) in 44 prioritised woredas in Ethiopia. The MYRP is an ambitious plan created by the Ministry of Education together with Education sector stakeholders. The proposed MYRP includes immediate actions to address critical educational needs of IDP, returnee, and relocated children and medium to long-term interventions to build resilience of the education system to support the (re)integration of returnee and relocated children and their host communities.
In line with identified priorities in the education section of the HRP 2019 and ECW strategic priorities, initial MYRP interventions will utilise ECW seed funding in prioritised woredas and focus on getting out of school internally displaced and returnee/relocated children back into education with a special focus on girls and children with disabilities. Education Cannot Wait (ECW) has so far committed $27m in seed funding to the overall MYRP. This seed funding will be managed by UNICEF and SC as Grantees, and implemented by a range of organisations. It will target 60,487 (30,717 boys, 29,770 girls, including 6,049 CWDs) from 17 woredas. Somali region Eight woredas and 32,000 children will be targeted. Interventions will be scaled up to target all emergency-affected regions and children in 44-prioritised emergency-affected woredas with a system strengthening approach as more additional resources are mobilized and anchor the MYRP into national programmes such as GEQIP-E. The provision of seed funding within a broader investment framework that encourages resource mobilisation is another aspect of the MYRP that adds distinct value to the sector, the work of the Cluster, and the overall education in emergency response in Ethiopia.Under the direct supervision of the ECW Seed Fund Education Program Manager, the Education Program coordinators will be responsible for the overall management and successful implementation of the Education Program in Jigjiga & Dolo-ado Field offices.
