A few weeks ago, the Supporting the Future of Syria and the Region Conference was held in Brussels with the goal to raise significant new funding to meet the immediate and long-term needs of those affected. At the conference, participants agree to continue to work towards the target of ensuring #NoLostGeneration of children. It is vital that the international community – multilateral institutions like the UN, governments, civil society and the private sector – fulfill this goal and not forget the children who are losing out on an education. Many organizations, including GBC-Education members ITWORX Education and HP, have been responding to this call to action.
Through its program WinjiGo, ITWORX Education is reaching thousands of Syrian refugee students in Lebanon. Winjigo is an e-learning platform that is accessible via desktop computers, laptops and tablets, and is designed for blended learning environments. The platform is a personalized and interactive social space that connects teachers and students who would not otherwise have the ability to connect.
In the video below, ITWORX Education outlines how its WinjiGo program is helping refugees and vulnerable host community children access quality education.
