EHCP into ADM Schools

GIZ is integrating EHCP into the Alternative Delivery Model (ADM) carried out by BRAC. Both EHCP and ADM are part of the Basic Education Assistance to Muslim Mindanao-ARMM (BEAM-ARMM) program funded by the Australian Government. EHCP focuses on simple and evidence-based health interventions in elementary schools to improve the educational attainment of students, while the ADM centers on the delivery of quality basic education to children in remote areas of ARMM. The project establishes BRAC Learning Centers (LCs) in regions not covered by the formal education system.There are important areas of convergence of both programs that relate to the building of local capacities in school health and hygiene.

To capitalize on these points of contact, BRAC and GIZ collaborate to integrate EHCP into their LCs with the assistance of GIZ and the NGO Fit for School Inc (Fit Inc). Initially EHCP implementation is piloted in twelve LCs in Maguindanao. GIZ provided a new  model of prefabricated group hand washing facilities based on a simplified and optimized design. Both partners are looking forward to further fruitful cooperation with BRAC, which will help increasing the outreach of EHCP and improve the social and economic opportunities of the children in the ARMM.
