Cultivating a Culture of Peace and Empathy in Young Children While Empowering Refugee Communities

Meeting the needs of children in refugee communities is a growing concern. Supporting their physical and emotional well-being is a challenge, as is protecting their right to quality education. Innovations are necessary to meet these challenges. Given the circumstances that have contributed to refugee crises around the world, education innovations that promote a culture of peace and empathy are particularly important.
