I. HIGHLIGHTS/KEY PRIORITIES
The establishment of Temporary Learning Centres has provided an opportunity for nearly 32,500 children, including 15,000 girls, to access education for the first time in their lives. There is a need to get more flood-affected children and teachers back to school by supporting the renovation of 6,150 partially damaged schools – 5,728 in Sindh and 422 in Balochistan – and providing transitional school structures to more than 3,600 totally damaged schools in the two provinces.
Humanitarian agencies in Sindh are identifying the locations of people who are displaced in many flood-affected areas that remain under water. The Temporary Settlement Support Unit (TSSU) is monitoring temporary settlements and will provide more information about them in the coming weeks.
