What a genius idea!

That's wonderful Jessica, glad to hear that potential partnership! FYI - Sr. Luise has worked with vulnerable children, both boys and girls plus older women and men too. Many of them are now grown and can share success stories of formal education. Thank you!

Wonderful idea! Integrating refugees into formal education definitey improves refugee education and also expands learning opportunities for refugees. However, challenges refugees face in formal schooling such as language barriers and age (and it's correlation to amount of schooling) have to be addresed first, and I think your bridge program might be able to do that very well. Quick question, how would you engage other refugees in implementing this - would you have an ambassodor group of refugees who have completed school for instance, would you have a group that tutors for instance or perhaps parents groups to encourage their kids? I grew up in Nairobi as a refugee and I value formal education very highly.
