Education and Protection

The main objective of Component 1 is to improve education, engagement and protection opportunities for children, youth and other marginalised groups.

Qudra 2 will support children and youth who find it difficult to access education to develop their potential, which will contribute to a secure, stable and prosperous future for the region. Qudra 2 will also have a special focus on improving the well-being of vulnerable, traumatised groups.


Promoting improvements in facility management and the provision of transport to educational facilities, and supporting learning and exchange formats for children and youth 
Structural barriers in Jordan’s educational system include children doing double shifts in schools, language barriers, vandalism, and the lack of secure and affordable school transport. Qudra 2 will target major challenges in the education sector and increase access to quality education services by developing an improved school transport system and a sustainable facility management system to enhance the learning environment for everyone. 

Children and youth will be offered structured extracurricular sports and cultural  activities to foster quality education and social cohesion.



Promoting protection measures for the self-development and wellbeing of children and vulnerable adults

Qudra 2 recognises the importance of handling psychological trauma professionally and works in cooperation with the Ministry of Health (MoH) to provide Iraqi health personnel with special training courses in Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) to strengthen their knowledge and skills and enable them to support Iraqi returnees, IDPs, Syrian refugees and host communities.


Strengthening the local and national protection systems and service delivery capacities

Qudra 2 in Lebanon supports Ministry of Social Affairs (MoSA) at national, regional (district/ CASA) and local (SDCs) levels in the further development and implementation of the new National Strategic Plan for Child Protection (CP) and Gender Based Violence (GBV) aiming that girls, boys and women at risk and survivors of violence, exploitation and abuse have access to an improved and equitable prevention and response.  

Promoting protection measures for the self-development and wellbeing of children and vulnerable adults

Qudra 2 will consolidate the protection/ CP activities implemented under Qudra 1 in the 8 selected SDCs and increase their outreach to enhance the resilience and wellbeing of vulnerable populations with focus on children and women, both Lebanese and Syrians, as well as will ensure protection of vulnerable individuals, especially people at risk of SGBV, persons with specific needs, disabled, youth, single mother, children and elderlies.
