Child-centered interventions are integrated into teaching practice both inside and outside the classroom, improving the quality of education for girls and boys. The project also works to promote safer school environments for play and better WASH facilities, as well as support for UNRWA school leadership and education officials to implement existing policies and strategies related to gender equality and child protection. and psychological and social well-being. The midterm evaluation integrates a mixed-methods approach which includes a quantitative survey and qualitative data collection.
