Millions of children in ASALs are blocked from attaining their full potential in life by structural and social- cultural barriers to education.

A whole range of factors combine to prevent marginalized children from accessing education:

Normadism

Their constant pastoralist life style of migration/movements in search of water and pasture for their livestock;

Pastoral lifestyle

The critical role of children in their pastoral way of life, which makes parents and guardians reluctant to release them to participate in formal schooling;

Time Management

The unsuitability of the formal school curriculum, time schedules and calendar, which are tailored to meet the needs of the mainstream sedentary groups and ignore the special educational needs of nomadic peoples;

Isolation

Their physical isolation and minimal social interaction with the larger society, as they live and operate in mostly inaccessible terrains;

Inadequate Infrastructure

Inadequate infrastructure and poor conditions of existing nomadic schools;

Insufficient Teachers

Insufficient teachers (most have fled due to threats of terrorism) and low level of required skills and competencies among the available teachers.
