Opportunity and Resilience in the Face of Displacement
The world is witnessing the largest refugee crisis since World War II, with causes varying from violent persecution to extreme climate crises. Children are seen as the most vulnerable in the face of such hardship, being exposed to risks and lacking access to learning resources and human connections.
In the face of such hardship, human resilience and the ability to see and create opportunities is one that we want to celebrate and support. We can change policy and educational systems to provide access to quality learning to foster resilience.
