Guidelines for Protecting Schools And Universities From Military Use During Armed Conflict

This year 2021, Plan International received support from Norwegian Ministry of foreign affairs to pursue activities related to safe schools declaration, which is one of the international instruments specifically preventing schools from attacks. In this regard, and on behalf of the education cluster, a dissemination workshop targeting humanitarian actors in general and education cluster partners in particular in both North-West and South-West regions of Cameroon, was organized. The workshop was to familiarize and to raise awareness among education actors on the aim of the safe schools declaration and it was also to help the participants to learn on the guidelines’ implementation at community level. From December 04 to 05, 2021, ITAKA Cameroon Foundation as a partner participated in this session, which aimed to appropriate and contextualize the declaration for the protection of schools against attacks.
