Building Back Safer Schools for All (BBSSF)
$5 million, 2015-2017
Australia worked with an Australian NGO (Plan International) following the 2015 earthquakes to help vulnerable children transition back into school and ensure classrooms are built back better. This investment helped more than 17,000 children, especially children with disabilities, and those at greater risk of child labour, abuse, exploitation and being left behind, to go back to school.
