We're connecting networks of NGOs, social entrepreneurs, educators, designers and students  around the world – and working closely with communities to do this. In the Refugee Education Challenge, we have community roles in Ethiopia, Kenya, Pakistan and Uganda. They'll be familiar faces in this challenge, contributing research posts, blogs and feedback. We're excited to introduce you!
