How does the ECOCA contribute to quality education?
Prior to receiving the ECOCA many children had to skip classes frequently in order to collect firewood for their families. Instead of collecting firewood, children in the refugee camps, especially girls, can go to school and use the time saved for studying.
The additional feature of the LED lamp that the ECOCA provides, enables children and young adults to do their homework in the evenings. 44% of all beneficiaries recognized their children studying more in the evenings.
They are also often joined by neighboring children, which promotes studying together and increases learning- and social activities.
