Rights Respected, People Protected
The Norwegian Refugee Council is an independent humanitarian organisation helping people forced to flee. We work in crises in 31 countries, where we help save lives, rebuild futures and promote the rights of people who are displaced. We deliver high-quality aid where needs are greatest, in both new and protracted crises.
In Palestine, NRC provides humanitarian assistance and promotes respect for international law in one of the longest-running displacement crises in modern history. In the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and Gaza, NRC’s work includes emergency preparedness and response, education, ICLA, protection, shelter and WASH.
The Better Learning Program- BLP is a big component of the NRC education Program in Gaza; it is the result of a successful, long-standing research practice collaboration between NRC and the University of Tromso. BLP offers psycho-social support through a three-phased intervention: i) classroom-based psycho-educational support approach targeted at all children integrated flexibly into classroom practice and linked with other PSS topics/approaches (BLP1), ii) a small group intervention to support resilience among a more specific target group of academic under achievers through five group sessions facilitated by teachers (BLP2) ; and iii) specialized, clinical approach to address nightmares which many children experience as chronic symptom of traumatic stress, consisting in individual and group sessions provided by school counsellors (BLP3). Recently, the NRC Education Program in Gaza- Palestine intends to carry out an EiE new intervention, this intervention will be three-fold: 1) support most vulnerable MoEHE schools focusing on helping children recover their lost or reduced learning capacity, strengthen resilience and promote well-being by applying the BLP. 2) Support the DES through the provision of material assistance. 3) Coaching programs for teachers and counselors that may include INEE Conflict Sensitive Education (CSE), Teachers in Crises Contexts (TiCC), PSS-BLP and Emergency Preparedness; and 4) the constitution of a strategic Advisory Group, falling under the education sub-cluster.
