8:22 pm
hello and welcome to the program i'm hashim. summer holidays are almost over for children in the northern hemisphere but many kids won't be returning to class in west and central africa the u.n. children's fund says armed groups eyeing targeting schools teachers and students unicef says more than 9000 schools in the region have closed due to violence 3 times the number of the end of 2017 which means nearly 2000000 children are missing out on an education the unicef report examines increasing threats and attacks in 8 central and west african countries nearly half of the schools closed in cameroon where more than 600000 children are not going to classes in mali attacks on schools doubled between 2017 and this year in central african republic the number rose by
8:23 pm
more than a 5th and school closures due to violence have gone up 6 ford in book in a fossil molly and nisha. let's bring in our panel in johannesburg patti nachle chief of the unicef africa services unit and the lead author of the report in akra ghana. executive director of the west africa network for peace building and in my degree nigeria my. teacher based in borno state welcome to you all better we're talking here about an increasingly alarming situation but what about the name cause is it instability of the violence or a combination of different other factors. well basically we have 1900000
8:24 pm
children being pushed out of their education being pushed out of school across 8 countries in western central africa for in security reasons for violence as well as threats of violence i myself for instance visited to put in a fossil a few weeks back and there the what we see is that the reasons most of the schools are closing is because of threats of violence they see that that schools have been attacked in other villages there are rumors that are coming through that this school will also be attacked so basically children are kept home and in often is the case as well obviously you know entire villages are being displaced because of that fear of attacks so we have a combination of think the root cause is insecurity and it is fear and that is making parents keep their children at home rather than sending them to school to clinica why is this fear gaining momentum in different parts of the west and central. africa i think the 1st thing is to upload it that is the cycle when you
8:25 pm
have the levels of. the standard of education that we have in west africa especially you look at the increase number of militants and violent extremists then you begin to now make a connection between what has happened in the past and what is happening today so if you look at. region like the not east and part of nigeria we have elite literacy level is over 65 percent little wonder why we have the issues relating to volunteer stream is in the diary 2 john and now what happens is that when you have a level of illiteracy that we have which increases the number of out of school children especially be male children they go on fact all these laws and then the education of banda continue to go down on daily basis so the next was between these what happens within the disaster. curity. is what you begin now to imagine
8:26 pm
not just about today but even about tomorrow so if you look at what has happened over time dems of the standard of education on what is happening today need to wonder why we have what we hope. my do in my jugglery an area that has been targets as many times in the past by book a how to give us an idea about challenges you face and daily basis to convince families to send their kids back to school and do not if we know we have been challenge and our target then was teach us about 2 thought on 500 teach us our being cute wearing 2 stadia trying to study here in the open 50000 a cup down there we have to run for our lives where you migrated to the rural areas in different areas let's extend it to ride it out a way to start it attempting killing teachers there we need to come back to about it where we showed the little mall security personnel coming about to be rear up on fantastic schools who are being burnt on daily basics teach school been attacked in
8:27 pm
university it is hard to be closed down and shouldn't do not have access to scoot over time before the introduction of distorted i could use to be on duty if we fall we now have to duck to send out some of the militant into bach to put it down knowing the obama sent us to i was done when we started at work it started at work and started calling but today that see the education cannot wait that we have to come back to school that we're not the root cause of these incidents like this because it's just you chief. because if it literally if the photos to reduce it to didn't used to come back to school i did get one cannot which. i broke at an air party your reporter walks about groups like booker how i'm saying that western education kababs islamic value is that it begs the question about the mammoth task you face in the future to convince local communities that that argument advanced by
8:28 pm
those groups doesn't hold ground. yes we know this this is across the countries that we have been looking at that education what is perceived as western style education is at the bottom or the core of some of the conflicts in those countries which is why as unicef we try very much to work hard with the local community with the local community and to come up with local solutions because unless the local community is with us and feels that the education is coincides with their values then you know these these solutions are not going to work we have introduced for instance in nigeria we basic education skills and education curricula in koranic schools we work with local community elsewhere as well to make sure that that parents are involved in the education of their children this is not a solution that had that can be imposed from from the exterior we work very much
8:29 pm
with with community based solutions and that is really one of the solutions that we have to scale up and work harder at as we move forward if we are to respond to this very concerning situation as as one of your guests was previously saying education is very much key i spoke to one priest in northern in northern book in a fast saw a few weeks ago who was telling me that without education there is no development and this is these are in many cases parts of the world that are severely underdeveloped that have a huge issue with children not accessing school to begin with out of school the number of up to school children for instance in in mali and elsewhere is very high and you that you add to that the attacks on the schools and the attacks on the education and you see how that situation is actually compounding in the ripple effect of that is not only going to be felt today in the current situation for these children but also for their families and their communities moving forward if you don't educate
8:30 pm
a child today what's going to happen to that child when he or she grows up as an adult and therefore. family and their community and their countries so this is really something that we have to take into consideration and the solutions really have to be long term. aren't we here talking about failure of governments because it's their argument goal which is to provide security. for its own citizens and protests schools if you look at the investments in education our system over the years by many of the african leaders this will confirm exactly the report the lower level investments in education has created some of these challenges we're seeing today and it begs to question the whole idea about the africa continent our free trade zone we are we are looking at the the youths and the leaders of tomorrow then the production engine for that for to make that africa
8:31 pm
continent that 3 trips on excel but if you look at the quality of education compounded now by the issues of peace and security which is not allowed to keep going to school at the moment we have over. 300 are something to keep that out of school and making the teacher asked redundant most of them are not going to school because they cannot teach and then he keeps are also out of school so it gives you a whole idea about everything around what we have to do to our compound then it read of the issues of governance defeat and leadership challenges that we have on the continent to some a does this is the talking here about raising awareness you live in a state that was suddenly the headlines all over the world in 2014 with the chibok schoolgirls kidnapping since that kidnapping have you seen a change in the mentality of the people the way the government is reacting to
8:32 pm
address this particular problem. in your own area. in 2000 photos of 30 insurgents i don't know about the kidnapping of each book yes then there was an in my squad in my school just look at it i did not is time cannot do state that extreme and cannot escape and i missed several attacks in that area does call khalidi name are being spread kind of a community and i've been through an attempt to school before you need to have had an intervention in the school and it seemed teach us a world. that culturally diverse. and u.p.s. is that the psychosocial support to teach us does the best at least it is best to does it where using money to an hour to get a new start beauty and not a thought brought us that is to teach us the most of our teachers found it that if we how did very hard that is to share in our say what that in meant to in our
8:33 pm
social relationship or to put an artificial so we teach what we bet in congress on what it would to money our school and it shouldn't and we have development plan we know how to stitch on the security personnel around the school we have their contact. i know also we also say. we have also stepped down to fit into the community we involve the community members that in the larger community and we have their contact that everything mean anything to the party and i would advise to denote how to walk in that impeaches to school not in doing this on who could remember that in 2 years it doesn't know them but to tell us they would think they have an attempt in my school that he just could not be attempted i would have city so one blast about for just about 200 meters away from what we did infusion of this chain and by unicef which it would to come down our students and not least load them down on to school very different get out and had been very helpful and betty.
