To mitigate the impact of COVID-19, this proposal outlines Tuvalu’s interventions to prevent and control COVID-19 in schools as well as creating safe and healthy learning environments conducive to teaching and learning.
Also, there is specific investment in the education system to allow for student learning to continue in the event of the pandemic arriving in Tuvalu or another natural disaster in Tuvalu.
The overall goal of this program is to ensure successful continuity of education for all children both now and in the future.
To achieve this goal the program is designed in four phases with the following outcomes:
- School communities are confident to be in school
- All children have access to continuing educational opportunities
- Schools remain safe both from a physical and psychosocial point of view
- The education system is more resilient to future disruptions
