A European Union-funded project to improve educational standards in the Dadaab refugee camp complex has been officially launched, Somalia's Radio Ergo reported Sunday (April 21st).

The project will fund new classrooms for all schools in the camp, merit scholarships for top students, and provide adult programmes and special education for girls.

The European Union has allocated 3.5 million euros ($4.6 million) to fund the project for three years.

The funds will be divided, with 75% benefiting Dadaab refugees and 25% for host communities in the Fafi and Lagdera constituencies, EU official Mohamed Mahad Sabuul said.

The project was devised in response to an education assessment survey in 2011 that revealed poor education quality in Dadaab.
