Response to Emergencies

When a devastating natural disaster occurs in some countries, the OMEP Executive Board takes immediate actions to help the affected countries to rebuild the early education and care programs, along with endeavor for the reduction of the disaster impact. Those efforts mainly center on providing quality early education and care (e.g., establishing early education and care centers, libraries, training early education teachers, providing educational materials and nutritious meals, etc.) in collaboration with other OMEP members and international NGOs such as UN/UNICEF. However, the efforts often extends to revitalizing local communities as a whole by participating in more community-wide comprehensive projects. Stories about specific cases are presented below.
