After more than two decades of conflict, one generation of Somalia’s children lost the opportunity for formal education and other benefits of a stable childhood. Somalia has one of the world’s lowest enrollment rates for primary school-aged children – only 30 percent of children are in school and only 40 percent of these are girls. Further, only 18 percent of children in rural households are in school.
Extremely high rates of poverty in communities across Somalia make it difficult for parents to afford school fees. In many areas, parents are required to pay for their children’s education, and poverty remains the main reason they give for not sending their children to school.
ISIR Consulting realizes that the future belongs to the nation that best educates its people. We support a project that equips schools in Somalia with science lab equipment and supplies to improve the education quality and student achievement.
At ISIR Consulting, we understand the importance of having up-to-date science lab equipment supplies at schools as science is different from any other subject and to understand its concepts, one has to look beyond the books and conventional classroom teaching.
ISIR Consulting provides cutting edge research solutions and in-depth analysis to our clients on diverse issues spanning the political, socio-economic and structural contexts in Somalia and the Horn of Africa Region.
With strong operational experience, robust program management skills, rapid response capabilities, and a network of local expertise, ISIR Consulting helps humanitarian objectives in Somalia.
