Myanmar Education Consortium (MEC) provided two-day Education in Emergency (EiE) training for Meikswe Myanmar (MM) staffs including field staff from Lashio, Pakokku and Rakhaing state in Dec 2016. The training covered both theoretical and practical aspects of EiE. The EiE training module is designed based on Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) minimum standards and UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
EiE is a new topic for most of the participants. They were very interested in the subject and actively took part in group activities and, questions and answers session.
From the EiE training, participants will be able to identify the different types of emergency scenarios and describe their impact on children, education systems and communities, explain the rationale for education as a first response in emergencies and be aware of the key international legal instruments and conventions and understand that they underpin learner’s right to education in emergencies
At the end of the EiE training, all participants will share their EiE knowledge in their respective township.
