Refugee Education Challenge is now accepting ideas to improve education opportunities for children in refugee camps.
“Now is the chance to share an idea you have for how to improve education for refugees. We’ve partnered with UNCHR and UNICEF – so even if you aren’t able implement your idea yourself, there’s an opportunity you to submit a winning idea that could be implemented through partnerships with organizations already working with UNICEF and UNHCR.
Winning ideas on our shortlist will attend a design support bootcamp hosted by IDEO.org designers, where participants will learn how to apply human-centered design to their challenge idea. A handful of these ideas will be selected to receive a share of $500,000 in funding and design support.”
Design Principles for Refugee Education:
- Focus on what we can do now
- Design for gender equality
- Keep resource limitations in mind
- Design for uncertainty
- Take an inclusive approach
- Be culturally sensitive
