[[en]]Ensuring safe learning spaces is one of the main priorities as numerous schools were badly damaged or fully destroyed. The provision of prefabricated schools or containers for both learning and teacher accommodation, along with repairing slightly damaged schools, are now critical steps towards resuming education. However, access to formal schooling isn’t enough to support children and young people. According to the needs assessments implemented by different international organizations, there is also a crucial need to support children with psychosocial support activities. [[nl]]Eén van de prioriteiten van lokale autoriteiten was om zo snel mogelijk veilige leerplekken te voorzien voor kinderen, aangezien ook veel scholen (zwaar) beschadigd werden. Daarom werden er heel wat containerklassen voorzien, en werd er werk gemaakt om de licht beschadigde scholen zo snel mogelijk weer operationeel te krijgen, om zoveel mogelijk kinderen de mogelijkheid te geven om opnieuw naar school te gaan. Volgens verschillende bevragingen door organisaties op het terrein is er ook een immense nood om kinderen te ondersteunen via psychosociale activiteiten om hen te helpen omgaan met de traumatische ervaringen die ze meemaakten tijdens en na de aardbeving.
