Join us for an exclusive NetHope Member information session on the No Lost Generation (NLG) initiative and the upcoming NLG EdTech Summit in March 2017. The No Lost Generation effort is a joint strategic framework to support children and youth affected by the Syria crisis. #NoLostGeneration
Nearly six years since the start of the Syria crisis, the proportion of Syrian children out of school has tripled. In the 2014-15 school year 40% of children were not enrolled in education. Many Syrian children have never had the opportunity to attend school and those in school continue to be at risk of dropping out. These children are being deprived of their childhood and their futures, along with their right to education.
The NLG TechEd Summit aims to showcase tech-based solutions to the education and skills challenges caused by the Syrian refugee crisis, and look at ways to move EdTech initiatives forward.
In this session we want to explore ways for NetHope members to collaborate and contribute with the objective of follow-ups like:
- Attendance by NetHope members
- Potential to support one of the grants that will be made
- Mark Chapple, Head of No Lost Generation, World Vision Syria Response
