Thank you for your support!

Thank you for supporting the Refugee Educator Academy Your support of the Refugee Educator Academy is having a meaningful impact on Refugee Educators across the globe. I would like to show you how your investment is transforming education through the eyes of a teacher.

For eight weeks this summer, Syrian teacher Khaled Jasem traded his 20-by-9-foot classroom in a refugee camp in Zehla--capital of the Governorate of Bekka, roughly 30 miles east of Beirut— for a virtual learning space with educators from 9 countries. He participated in a pilot course designed for teachers and teacher-trainers working with Refugee Students with Limited or Interrupted Formal Education (SLIFE). Offered by the Carey Institute’s Center for Learning in Practice (CLiP) as part of the Refugee Educator Academy, the course encourages participants to bring their own experience and context as they explore approaches, tools, and connections that will best support their work in meeting both the academic and social-emotional needs of students. Jasem said it would be difficult to find elsewhere the materials presented in the pilot course and certainly the interactive platform, which he described as amazing; the group exchanges at the end of each learning module and the discussion Team Site for sharing ideas were invaluable to him. The SLIFE pilot course is only one facet of CLiP’s Refugee Educator Academy.

Thank you again for your support during our recent Refugee Educator Campaign and for contributing to the success of dedicated changemakers like Kaled Jasem.
