“How might we improve education and expand learning opportunities for refugees around the world?”

i-ACT has joined the Amplify Refugee Education Challenge, in order to contribute to solutions for improved learning opportunities for refugees around the world.

In partnership with UNICEF Innovation and UNHCR, Amplify is asking people and organizations around the world to design education solutions that help refugees learn new skills and gain access to quality education. In doing so, Amplify is first compiling pre-challenge research until April 21st, to learn from educational initiatives and innovations in education. We’ve entered a profile of Little Ripples for this first phase. We’ve seen the impact of the program and believe Little Ripples fills a gap and need in preschool education for refugee children and their community. Through this challenge, we’re hoping to share our best practices and seeking opportunity for partnership with other actors.

Learn more about the challenge and share the Little Ripples contribution page, watch a video on Little Ripples and / or send us a comment or question


Little Ripples is creating spaces where children can thrive, physically and emotionally. Support our mindfulness work.
