Refugee-led Early Childhood Education
Little Ripples is an early childhood education program tailored to a population exposed to severe trauma. The program trains and employs refugee women to provide play-based, peacebuilding and culturally inspired preschool education to improve the early development of refugee children. Completely refugee-led, the program plants a seed of education, peace, and hope for refugee children and their community.
