#Education Despite War & Conflict
Children Affected by War are Out-of-School
Syrian Refugees Cannot Attend School
A Problem Worth Solving, And 2.6 Million Reasons Why
Currently, over 2.6 million Syrian children are without any form of education. Despite the best efforts of host countries in the region, many children have missed out on 2-3 years of school and are now verging on becoming a lost generation. Isn’t it time we try something new to reverse this trend? Help us save over 2.6 million Syrian children from becoming a lost generation through our innovative mobile learning program.
If they can’t come to school, let’s bring school to them!
Refugee Education Crisis in Jordan and Lebanon
Our Solution, Smartphone Schools Mobile Learning Program
Bringing Education Into The Hands That Need It The Most
Aliim is confident that mobile learning is the most efficient, scalable and cost-effective solution to address this educational crisis and we are moving quickly to make this a reality. Even with the proliferation of educational apps in developed countries and increasingly more affordable mobile devices suited for developing countries, few mobile learning initiatives are designed to specifically support the universal Education For All (EFA) goals. These goals are based on the right that every child has to an education. In a mobile learning policy report that was published in the fall of 2013, UNESCO clearly indicates that technology is a conduit for attaining EFA goals because it has the capacity to:
*Expand the reach and equity of education
*Increase learner responsibility
*Provide immediate feedback
*Record monitoring and progress
*Improve communication and administration
*Minimize educational disruption due to conflict
