In January 2019 we engaged by The Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action on reviewing the Child Protection Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Action. We reviewed the components of education and livelihood, a contribution on child protection efforts which has led to inviting us to join with child protection actors from different parts of the world at the annual meeting of child protection in humanitarian action and the launch of the second edition of the child protection minimum standard, a meeting which will be held in Geneva on 14th and 15th October 2019.

In January 2012,ENVAYA (www.envaya.org) which is an electronic platform of grassroots CSOs in Tanzania to its members the idea of conducting a survey regarding the recent Dar es salaam flooding to assess the effect of flooding in terms of dwellers’properties,water services, income and infrastructures.PELO was among the organizations which participated on the exercise. But since the much concentration of PELO is on Education it went further by assessing the effect of flooding in terms of schooling of children. The survey of PELO revealed that in every ten families that are found to have been affected by flooding, it is only two families which could be found to have no children at school thus pupil/student. The remaining eight families each has at least one child at school.That means the recent flooding has affected academic performance of a big number of children.
