The “Ladder to Learning” initiative, implemented by Young African Refugees for Integral Development (YARID) aims to bridge the education gap among refugee children between the ages of 9-14 who are out of school in Kyaka, Palabek refugee settlements and Kampala, is now in its second cohort. The learners are receiving support in numeracy and literacy fundamentals using the Teaching at the Right Level approach and play-based learning. We are excited to announce that YARID has been selected for Education Cannot Wait funding, enabling them to implement an in-school project using the TaRL methodology in Kyaka II refugee settlement across eight schools. By collaborating with dedicated school teachers, YARID remains committed to helping these learners catch up on missed education. Read more about YARID’s TaRL programmes here.
