Children affected by humanitarian crises need high-quality educational technology innovations at scale to improve their lifelong social and economic opportunities.  However, there is limited evidence on what works in humanitarian relief contexts, as well as how to effectively bring technology solutions to scale.

Practitioners, donors and policymakers are unable to make informed ICT4Edu decisions on spending scarce resources and working towards sustainable impact. This is particularity pronounced during COVID-19 digital response.

$600,000 Humanitarian Education Accelerator Grants

Humanitarian Education Accelerator grants support promising educational innovations that can transition from successful pilots to nationwide programmes reaching children with quality education.
