Summary

Embodying refugees' traumatic stories through visual expression opens our eyes to prejudices and stereotypes, sparking empathy through reflection. This art collection presents the inhuman plight of refugees while showcasing the human narrative embodied within this dark landscape. Refugee children leave everything behind, yet they hold onto their dreams. By providing educational programs to children, Education Unbound improves their future job prospects and keeps their dreams alive.

Challenge

Without education, unprotected and vulnerable refugee children can easily slip into forced exploitation of armed groups, terrorism, or early marriages. There are 4 million refugee children out of school, an increase of half a million in just one year. Only 61% of refugee children attend primary school, compared with a global average of 92%. Only 23% of refugee children are enrolled in secondary school, compared to 84% globally. Education breaks the cycle of poverty and exploitation.

Solution

Education is a basic human right. Education Unbound provides access to certified education for children and adolescents who have missed out on substantial amounts of schooling, improves quality of education through digital technology, implements basic literacy and life skills courses. The programs are STEAM courses that allow for project-based, interdisciplinary studies including options for choice and accelerated materials taught by passionate Inspirators.

Long-Term Impact

This project will educate over 70 children, allowing them to integrate back into the classroom among peers, create a sense of inclusion, and eventually allow them to join the national educational system of the host country. The refugees will feel protected from exploitation, empowered by the knowledge and skills to live productive, fulfilling and independent lives, and enlightened by learning about themselves and the world around them, while striving to rebuild their lives and communities.
