Founded in 1991 as the Education Programme for Sudanese Refugees, Education Base is a Consultancy organisation, registered both a s a company and a CBO in Uganda, specialising in Education and Training in Difficult Circumstances, whether slow-burn situations such as in displaced and refugee camps and slum areas or in situations of crisis during and after civil conflict and natural disasters. Its centres and publications use the name Echo Bravo – the call sign for Education Base.

Education Base bridges the gap between humanitarian intervention (such as emergency training) and development, recognizing that there is no quick fix for good education and training. Education Base is comfortable working in multi-cultural settings and working with individuals, groups and government authorities.

Education Base designs, implements and evaluates projects. At the programme level, we also assist partners to develop sound educational policyEducation Base carries out surveys and research using local youth teams trained on the spot.

We have many years’ educational experience, especially work for youth, refugees, displaced people, street children and children affected by the AIDS epidemic.  Our recent experience covers Mali, Uganda, South Sudan, Somalia/land and DR Congo.

Education Base and its staff have carried out consultancies for – or managed projects for – the British Council, DfID, European Commission, and many NGOs.  Our staff have worked for and with UNDP/UNOPS, UNHCR, UNESCO-PEER, UNICEF, Governments, INGOs such as NRC and Save the Children. Windle Trust; as well as institutions, churches and youth organisations.

It is a basic principle of Education Base that it provides capacity-building for all with whom it works. All field managers and most staff of Education Base projects are nationals of the country they work in.

Quality through Innovation

Education Base uses innovative methods to assure quality through close follow up, for example by video assessment and by the use of tablets and smartphones to deliver harmonised lessons and guidance. All centres will provide good quality wireless connections and phone charging stations.

Echo Bravo Youth Centres

Education Base has a special focus on youth and has set up or supported youth centres, youth clubs, youth magazines and youth FM radio. Education Base has designed and implemented programmes for Children and Youth affected by the AIDS epidemic and by war, including ex-militias, youth in and out of school, working or unemployed.

Education Base has worked extensively with refugees, returnees, displaced people, and, importantly with those who were trapped behind the lines or isolated in occupied areas (the ‘stayees’).  In Uganda, we helped young women who had been abducted by the LRA with an accelerated (‘catch-up’) primary learning programme.

We actively search for the normally unreached: the unemployed or partly employed who have never completed their education, house-girls and houseboys, young people with no means to go to normal schools, those who are normally missed out, passed over or ignored.

Teachers

Education Base supports and trains teachers by direct and distance education methods. We train emergency teachers on the job where the teaching force needs to be rebuilt. We are developing online in-service training for teachers who will be using tablets to support their teaching.

NGO employees, Self-employed

Education Base provides courses (both direct and by distance methods) to upgrade the Communication Skills of NGO workers. We train NGO workers in all aspects of report-writing, project proposal design and writing.

Communication Skills

We have a special objective to improve the quality of language and communication skills at all levels, including oral work designed for those such as radio announcers who need oral skills. We help people to know their existing level using diagnostic tests we have developed.
