This innovative content is sure to help plug the hugely detrimental gaps carved in displaced children's education. Having tutored many child refugees in the Uk, I have experienced how many young people, particularily those who have spent protracted periods in refugee camps, have huge difficulties with their learning in later childhood or early adulthood oweing to key fundamentals being missed when younger. This often led to frustration for refugee children even when in schools and colleges in the Uk (a comparativrly fortunate position compared to many other child refugees), as the schools did not have the capacity or quality to identify these gaps, leaving children feeling further alienated and pressured.
Innovation that seeks to combat the effect of displacement robbing young people of their childhood and developement in a cost effective way is a huge tick in my book!
