Case Study: Education for South Sudanese Refugees in Ethiopia
An education programme for South Sudanese refugees in Ethiopia illustrates the use of two complementary sets of standards: the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE)’s Minimum Standards for Education and Sphere Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards. Mesfin Arega, the Catholic Relief Services Program Manager affirmed the value of using both sets of standards: “Using both sets of standards side by side is good. INEE’s Education Standards were used for the school construction activities and Sphere was used for WASH. They complemented each other. Having a common understanding, using internationally accepted standards is a real advantage when it comes to planning for the long term.
