    Over The Next Five Years, Digital School Plans To Educate 1 Million Refugees

    There is a problem in refugee schooling. In the latest UNHCR numbers, about half of all refugee children are not in school, and this percentage is expected to climb as a result of recent global disturbances. Over the next five years, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Global Initiatives Foundation in Dubai has created The Digital School, which aims to enroll one million refugees. The Digital School’s first phase was formally started this year in five nations, including Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Mauritania, and Colombia, as part of a test stage that began in 2020. This year, up to 20,000 students are expected to enroll, as well as 500 professors. Additionally, 120 learning centres will be established, delivering instructional material in the four languages: Arabic, French, Spanish and English.
