Bar ama Baro
The five-year USAID-funded Bar ama Baro (“Teach or Learn” in Somali) program is a comprehensive primary education program designed to support the government of Somalia in providing quality non-formal education services to marginalized children across the country.
Through working at both the national and local level, BAB systematically and strategically assists government and community actors in designing and delivering comprehensive non-formal education services to children most in need of accelerated education assistance.
The program directly supports the government in policy and program design, while also rolling out implementation in eight districts, with the goal of reaching approximately 50,000 school children.
By designing and delivering programming and supporting systemic policy changes, BAB and its partners will expand curriculum, extend service reach and strengthen learning support to ensure that all children, and especially marginalized children, will be able to access equitable, safe and conflict-sensitive education.
