The Promising Practices in Refugee Education initiative is a partnership of Save the Children, UNHCR, and Pearson that identifies, documents, and promotes innovative ways to effectively reach refugee children and young people with quality educational opportunities. One of the innovative approaches identified is our Little Ripples early childhood development program. During the webinar, I’ll be presenting how iACT and our Little Ripples program tackles the balance between providing immediate action to address the developmental needs of refugee children and working alongside partners and refugee beneficiaries for longer-term impact.
I hope you’ll join us! If you haven’t already, please view our published Promising Practices in Refugee Education Little Ripples case-study here.
