As part of UNHCR Policy on selection and retention of partners for project partnership agreements, UNHCR Tunisia is publishing a Call for expression of interest to select partners for the following project:
Project title and Identification: Optimal access to education (primary and secondary)
Project Location: Tunis, Zarzis, Medenine, Sfax
Brief Background of the Project: Displacement causes many refugee children to miss months or even years of school. Some are experiencing difficulties to go back to school, especially if this entails enrollment at a lower academic level. Differences between the Syrian curriculum and that in Tunisia deter some children from attending to school, or lead them to eventually drop out. Language is also a major issue: in Syria, teaching is exclusively in Arabic, while in Tunisia, classes are also taught in French. This is a particular problem for older children. UNHCR provides support to refugees and asylum seekers by assisting families with enrollment to schools, and by providing conditional cash-assistance to families who enroll children to both encourage access to education, as well as its continuity should families not have adequate financial means.
Goal/Objective, Expected Outcome and Main Activities: Improve access to primary and secondary education through provision of conditional cash-assistance to families to enroll children in school; provision of language classes (French, Arabic, English) to support children follow the curriculum; provision of general support classes to keep up with the curriculum and foster re-enrolment of school drop outs; extra-curricular activities (clubs, etc.); support to refugees and asylum seekers trying to enroll in university.
