Support to IDP education and pupil transition from ABE to formal school in Puntland

This report discusses the findings and recommendations from the final evaluation of a pilot project that aimed at enabling 1000 displaced and other vulnerable children in IDP settlements around Bossaso, Puntland, to access quality primary education, and improving the learning environment in 10 partner schools. The evaluation focusses on assessing the effectiveness of providing conditional cash transfers (in the form of a voucher system) to vulnerable households as well as subsidies and capacity building to partner schools and education authorities to address immediate demand and supply-side constraints to attendance. It concludes that this incentivised approach was overall highly effective, and recommends a four-year extension in target schools, as well as the scaling up of the voucher system in other locations to support vulnerable children in completing the upper-levels of formal primary school.
