  • Youth development and leadership

  • Capacity building of local partners, such as government authorities and civil society curriculum development, especially supplementary curriculum to address the special needs of students and teachers affected by conflict

  • Teaching and learning materials

  • Education infrastructure support, such as rehabilitation and construction of schools or training institutions
