Promising Practices in Refugee Education – 3 Webinars

Over 3.5 million refugee children around the world are out of school. Refugee children, and their parents, frequently cite education as one of their main priorities. They see schooling as a source of hope and opportunity, and they are right.

Drawing on real life situations through 18 case studies from more than 10 countries, the Promising Practices in Refugee Education initiative – a partnership of Save the Children, UNHCR & Pearson – set out to identify, document, and promote innovative ways to effectively reach refugee children and young people with quality educational opportunities.

These projects have been used to identify ten recommendations, grouped under three overarching pillars, aimed at improving refugee education policy and practice.

Join representatives from the case studies in 3 webinars as we explore the themes and recommendations in depth.
