INEE Minimum Standards Case Study: Protecting Adolescents Through Quality Education in Eastern Chad
In December 2005, Refugee Education Trust (RET) started a post-primary education program aimed at protecting and empowering young Sudanese refugees (basic education for over-aged youth, formal and distance secondary education and language courses) and young people in the Chadian host communities (basic education for over-aged youth). The program provides basic education for over-aged youth, the accreditation of primary final examinations and secondary education, foreign languages courses, the acquisition of life skills, training in setting up and managing small businesses, as well as cultural and creative activities. Again this year, more than 5,000 young people benefit directly from the RET education program in eastern Chad. RET pays special attention to the INEE Minimum Standards in all phases of its education interventions in eastern Chad. The manual of the INEE Minimum Standards is a reference for all RET staff working in the field.
