The teachers are returning to school in Bangui PK5 area after two years of absence. Some activities have been held during these two years but with no official teachers and no standard curriculum.

The schools have been closed mainly because of unstable security situation and the fact that teachers have been unwilling to come to school as they have feared for their own security.  We will also provide training for the teachers and teaching materials and also organise bus transportation for the teachers for two weeks.

For the first time in two years, teaching will follow the standard curriculum.

FCA has taken the lead since the beginning of December to restart the activities of international NGOs in the Muslim enclave. Teachers, a local Imam, representatives from the Parent Teacher association, and local authorities as well as Ministry of Education are involved in the effort.

The official reopening will be held later this winter.
