The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the Libyan Ministry of Education signed on Tuesday an agreement to provide education for children affected by the armed conflict in the country.

UNICEF said in a statement later Wednesday that towards improved learning and quality basic services for children and adolescents, the Ministry of Education and UNICEF have signed today a two-year work plan 2019-2020.

“The plan aims to ensure equal access to quality education and provide conflict-affected children with education services and catch-up and remedial classes,” the statement reads.

The plan also includes training of teachers and education personnel on a range of topics, including the provision of protective education, according to UNICEF.
