The US$15 million COVID-19 grant supports:

  • 16 states, representing 63% of schools and nearly 70% of children enrolled in school. The Federal Ministry of Education has developed a COVID-19 Education Sector Strategic Framework available on its online portal, enabling states to adapt materials and develop specific response strategies
  • access to diverse remote learning programs appropriate for each context, through state-level radio and television-based education programs, printed take-home activity books, worksheets, and assessment cards
  • safe school operations with psychosocial support, access to children with special needs, provisioning WASH and hygiene supply to schools, back-to-school campaigns
  • enhanced systemic capacity and preparedness and resilience to future shocks through capacity building at the state level
  • prioritization of children from the most marginalized groups for the distribution of take-home materials and ICT equipment. They include migrant families, children from refugee communities, Almajiris and IDP camps, children living in poverty, and children with special needs
  • strong emphasis on social behavioral mobilization, including sensitization on gender-based violence for girls.
