Education Collaboration ... It's a new day to learn

A worldwide education connection

Peace and Education

“We cannot always build the future for our youth,

but we can build youth for the future.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt

Why?  

Because Education is a basic human right.

Enshrined in the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child (Article 28) and the 1951 Refugee Convention.

Because  Education can assist in making tomorrow more hopeful.

As the 2011 UNESCO report on education in armed conflict points out, “if you want peace and justice, … and if you want a people to be fair and tolerant towards one another, there is just one place to start – and that place is school”.

Because Education is needed.

“After times of conflict, educational activities play a very important role in helping to reintroduce a sense of normalcy and routine into the lives of children and adolescents.” Bruijn, (2009) 

Because Education should be available.

 

Though progress is being made, enrollment rates among the 156,000 children of school age in Dadaab remain relatively low. Often, there is only one teacher for every 100 pupils. In some cases, teachers are often refugees themselves, working in shifts, and teaching one group in the morning and one in the afternoon. (Basic Education Coalition)

Because the children want Education.

Our biggest problem is children trying to steal text books to take back to their tents because they want to learn.”(Dr. Rory Fox 2016)

Because every curriculum should include Peace Education.

LEARN SHARE INSPIRE

Welcome to my little world of big learning through this wonderful medium of the world wide web. My picture of a giraffe (with thanks to my friend Stephen Walsh for taking this fabulous photo and allowing me to share it) is my idea of “sticking my neck out” and taking on new challenges of eLearning. I hope we can learn, share and inspire together.
