In 2023, UNICEF supported high quality training for educators. Over 1,000 provincial and county-level experts and teacher trainers were trained in 13 capacitybuilding workshops. They later delivered over 300 training sessions at the local level with support from UNICEF and national partners.

To help some of the most vulnerable children, UNICEF supported innovation in education. This included the development of scalable models for inclusive education for children with disabilities in kindergartens and primary schools; holistic skill development, including social and emotional learning; and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education for adolescents, including girls from rural areas.

To support children affected by migration, UNICEF continued its Early Childhood Development centre programme. These centres provide safe spaces for children aged 0-6 years to learn through play and advice for caregivers on bringing up children.

UNICEF also helped protect children from violence and bullying, by introducing positive discipline resources and capacity development initiatives in schools.
