6 schools held learning exchanges for children focused on children's rights and disaster risk reduction.

These exchanges were conducted by children, for children. Their work will be involved in lobbying activities to push for their rights to be recognised at the provincial level. Children's rights can often be overlooked during emergencies and it is imperative that the government sees them as a priority.

Another 3,903 children were taught multi-hazard emergency drills.

Children now know to drop, cover and hold during an earthquake; and drop, cover and hide during armed conflict.

Schools have now taken measures to protect children by strengthening their buildings, installing warning systems, controlling passing traffic, and building fences around the grounds.

Two schools had to construct new temporary classrooms, and 15 schools had their water systems repaired.
