Harness the power of e-learning and a worldwide desire to help by connecting individual refugee learners with volunteer teachers. We may not be able to solve the refugee problem in the near or even distant future. An end to all wars is something we all dream about but is quite an elusive hope. But each of us can do something, however small, and make a difference somewhere in this world. This project will connect teachers around the world who have just a little spare time but who want to make a difference in the life of a single child (or adult) in a refugee camp with someone who wants desperately to learn, but needs some help getting started and help to persevere through the ups and downs of life.
Please read about this project in the About page! You can also read about it at the MIT news page . My entire proposal and initial plan are at this Solve solution page . The school where I teach, Dock Mennonite Academy in Lansdale, PA, also published an article about this endeavor which you can read at Dock’s website.
