With funding from Education Cannot Wait, UNICEF’s Curriculum B and inclusive school rehabilitation are supporting children with disabilities in accessing quality educational opportunities.
The rehabilitation works included painting classrooms, corridors and entrances, replacing and repairing damaged doors, windows and ceilings, as well as improving playgrounds and installing playground equipment, while ensuring an inclusive environment to support accessibility for children with physical disabilities.
“I was delighted to see the spacious bathroom and try the special pathway to class, constructed for children in wheelchairs like me. Classes looked grim before, but now they’re colourful and much more pleasant,” said Hamzeh about UNICEF’s school rehabilitation works that were concluded in his school at the beginning of 2020.
This rehabilitation also provided access to safe drinking water and inclusive sanitation and hygiene facilities by doing needed repairs and construction of the facilities.
