Introduction to REACT: Building public-private partnerships in EiE
GBC-Education and INEE hosted a webinar to showcase how business and implementation partners can use the Rapid Education Action (REACT) digital platform to deliver much-needed resources to children caught in conflict. REACT is a matchmaking platform that channels support from businesses – in the form of financial and in-kind contributions, technical expertise, and employee volunteers – to NGOs and other organizations providing educational opportunity in emergency situations.
During the webinar, GBC-Education conducted a live demonstration of the REACT digital platform. Attendees learned how to register for an account and request urgent resources on the website to get matched with and receive support from appropriate private sector organizations.
Panelists shared insights on the importance of public-private partnerships in education in emergencies, lessons learned from navigating the REACT partnership process, and useful tips on how to more effectively work across the sectors to harness meaningful partnership opportunities.
