Our Digital Education Programme in Bangladesh has been chosen by HundrED and the Global Ed Tech Hub as an ‘impactful and scalable educational technology innovation’ as part of a Spotlight Award this year.
July started with a bang with the launch of our newest virtual challenge - Summer Steps for Refugees - and the highlights didn’t stop there. We were thrilled to find out that our digital education programme had won an iFDesign Award and we were able to hear for the first time from some of the Rohingya refugees who have been relocated to the remote Bhasan Char Island. Read on to catch up with some of our news from this month.
Children on the Edge works to create conditions in which every marginalised child can flourish and thrive no matter where they live and irrespective of the challenging circumstances they face.
We identify children in some of the world’s toughest situations and work alongside local communities to co-create protective environments, so marginalised children can safely live, learn, play and grow.
This year, we reached more children than ever before, and saw three of our models of education and child protection replicated to new places, bringing sustainable change on a wider scale.
People living in Kutupalong camp, Bangladesh are truly living on ‘the edge’, facing poverty and violence, trapped in dangerous conditions and unable to leave. It’s here, Children on the Edge have been working for over a decade, supporting education for thousands of refugee children.
