The Somalia Education Cluster advocacy brief “Education Across the Border – Without proper planning for Education there cannot be repatriation in dignity” highlights that failure to properly plan the smooth reintegration of returnee children and adolescents in schools in Somalia will jeopardize the ongoing repatriation from Dadaab refugees camp in Kenya. Barriers to education are multiple in Somalia: lack of safe space for learning, lack of teachers, limited oversight and outreach by the Ministry of Education. Returnee children and youth who do not continue their learning are at great risk of joining the cohort of out of school children and adolescents  puttinh them at risk of harmful practices (child marriage, child labor, recruitment by armed groups).

The Somalia Education Cluster calls for a well-planned, adequately funded, effectively coordinated education program supporting the repatriation and (re)integration exercise which will contribute to the realization of rights and the much needed stabilization that Somalia needs.
