About Safe Schools

Since 2013, Prudence Foundation has been supporting the implementation of Safe Schools in partnership with Save the Children and Plan International. Safe Schools falls under a world-wide and ASEAN initiative, focused on making students, teachers and the local community more resilient to natural disasters. It helps to address the targets of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and Sustainable Development Goals.

Children have the right to feel safe when at school and to keep learning despite the disruptions natural disasters can have on their learning. Safe Schools addresses this by focusing on each school having the three pillars:

Pillar 1: Safe Learning Facilities

Pillar 2: School Disaster Management

Pillar 3: Risk Reduction and Resilience Education

Since 2013, over 82,000 students have participated together with over 33,000 teachers and community members also directly benefiting. Safe Schools also has the potential to indirectly benefit over 200,000 community members from the outcomes of the programme.

We are also working closely with the ASEAN Safe Schools Initiative (ASSI) team to help achieve scale and institutionalise this programme across as many markets as possible.
