As schools are a central pillar in the resilience of the community, a comprehensive program for the educational system on all levels, has the potential benefits of building resilience in the community and having the educational system prepared for times of crisis. The aim of the program is to train local professionals in the educational system, on basic psycho social concepts in order to enhance Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) in the aftermath of traumatic events, in affected school communities.
The training will provide practical tools to be implemented in the school system.
