The Education Response Plan for Refugee and Host Communities in Uganda (ERP) is a 3.5 year plan designed to ensure that individuals aged three to 24 from refugee and host communities are able to access sustained quality learning opportunities. As part of the Plan’s implementation, the ERP Steering Committee needs to have a record of their spending against their estimated costs, in order to understand progress of the ERP so far.
