Our objective is to support civil society institutions and schools in delivering creative and innovative solutions to problems facing refugee children in the Middle East and Europe.
A broad range of initiatives will be considered, but preference will be given to applications that fall under the following themes :
- Identification of innovative and impactful approaches to make education safe, accessible, and resilient in emergencies
- Implementation of comprehensive wellbeing schemes into existing educational bodies supporting refugee and displaced children
Our Strategic Priorities:
- Bridging the educational gap for out-of-school refugee children with alternative programmes to prepare them to successfully reintegrate into mainstream school
- Supporting the development of tailored educational settings to empower displaced and refugee children in host communities through the means of education.
- Effecting change in the lives of displaced and refugee children through the means of artistic expression and specialist artistic intervention
- Promoting understanding of heritage and cultural activities to help displaced and refugee children preserve the connection with their communities
- Supporting holistic approaches to wellbeing to help emancipate the most vulnerable and eliminate as many of their immediate needs as possible.
