Renovating schools and easing access to all
Led by national and municipal Libyan institutions and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Stabilization Facility for Libya (SFL) is an immediate stabilization initiative which provides quick rehabilitation of critical infrastructure and delivery of equipment to support local authorities to improve services to their citizens.
The SFL renovated Al Kholoud Primary School and handed it over to Sirt Municipality in 2018. In addition to rehabilitated classrooms, the center now has a covered playground where students can play at any time, even when it is raining. It is accessible to persons with disabilities as well.
"Rehabilitation has been carried out correctly and the center can host students again. They are very happy to learn in such environment," said Mr Meftah Khakis Masood, the School Director.
"In the school, moving from one place to another is very easy for persons with disabilities. All the corridors are ready for them," added Meftah.
"I can easily access all the classrooms and different learning spaces in the school," Ahmed explained.
The SFL has undertaken several projects in Sirt, including delivery of ambulances to Ibn Sina hospital, delivery of five garbage trucks and 200 garbage bins, and the renovation of Aqba Ibn Nafi , Al Ittihad , Khawla Bint Azur, Sana Ibn Youssef and Al Fath schools.
