School-in-a-Box Initiative | UPSC

Flood-affected children are set to get a “school in a box” in model relief camps across Assam.

The School-in-a-Box kit has become part of the UNICEF standard response in emergencies, used in many back-to-school operations around the world.

The kit contains supplies and materials for a teacher and up to 40 students.

The purpose of the kit is to ensure the continuation of children's education by the first 72 hours of an emergency.

The contents of the kit are culturally neutral, can be used anywhere in the world, and are often supplemented by locally purchased products, such as books in local languages, toys, games and musical instruments.
