• Group seating arrangement to promote group working, peer to peer support and buddy systems.
• Use visual supports eg, timetable in pictures.
• Accessible and child friend classroom: ramps, low reach blackboards, large window to let in light, easy maneuverability, accessible teaching and learning materials.
• Interactive teaching methods, supported by a specialist itinerant teacher (eg sign language or braille experts).
• Resource room for small group teaching.
Challenges faced by learners during education transition from class to class or school to school and ways in which these transitions can be made more inclusive and supported are presented.
Within the overall humanitarian response architecture, the Global Protection Cluster (GPC) works to improve the predictability, leadership, effectiveness and accountability of response to ensure that protection is central to humanitarian action. It is the GPC's responsibility to engage in three key areas: standards and policy setting, building response capacity, and operational support. Through the systematic application of an Age, Gender and Diversity (AGD) approach, it seeks to ensure that all individuals in affected communities have access to their rights on an equal footing. Various Essential Guidance and Tools are available in each of the areas of age, gender and diversity (persons with disabilities and minorities and indigenous people).
This guidance considers how self help groups are supported and the factors that are needed to ensure that they are functional, inclusive and sustainable.
This was a small-scale enquiry that involved looking at case studies from six partners that employ self-help group development for a range of purposes and in a range of geographical locations. A questionnaire was used by project officers with each of the six selected projects, and the resulting information was analysed by a group from CBMA’s International Programs department, with key areas of learning identified from this discussion. Findings are not comprehensive or conclusive and there is not one model for success. Instead the aim is to draw some useful tips from partners’ experiences.
