UNICEF

The only major source of textbooks in Somalia is through external and international aid agencies, mostly from UNICEF and UNESCO. There are no printing facilities available in the country and in the absence of a state, there are no government institutions to take on the task of printing textbooks. Hence, Somalis education system depends mainly on donated teaching materials from foreign aid. The distribution of textbooks is not regular and when distributed 2–4 children share one textbook. To offer Somali students proper education, in partnership with UNICEF, HIRDA distributes text books to the primary schools in Gedo region.
