Traditional formal and non-formal education
programs rarely prepare communities to live in areas of crisis and post-crisis.
It is therefore necessary to provide life-saving information on issues
like landmines, health issues and peace/tolerance education for the whole
community in both formal school settings and in non-formal community settings.
Supplementary life skills education should be available for children who
are not in school, their parents, the elderly, and marginalized groups.
Given the importance of supplementary learning and life skills, every opportunity
should be taken so that the community every enue for conveying information
should be used. In some cases, communities request that programs developed
for schools be adapted for adult and youth programs.
