Phase 2 goes from school age to adolescence. During this phase, BØRNEfonden focuses on schooling. In cooperation with the local community, we build and renovate schools, and together with school management, teachers and parent committees, we increase the quality of the children’s education.
Violence is a common means of punishing children in schools. We work to ensure safe schooling for children without violence.
Our work at the schools also focuses strongly on health and hygiene. The children learn the importance of good hygiene to avoid disease. We work to ensure that wells are built in the villages and that latrines are established in schools and homes.
During this phase, we continue our work to enable the parents to take care of their families, e.g. through income generating activities.
Phase 1: Early childhood
