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.
