Learning and Well-Being in Emergencies
A three-pronged approach to improving refugee education
Learning and Well-Being in Emergencies (LWiE) is an approach to education in emergencies (EiE) programming that focuses not only on literacy, but also on the issues impacting children's capacity to learn. It is being piloted in Cairo, Egypt and Doro Camp, Maban, South Sudan. By focusing on the well-being of both teachers and students and assessing their related social and emotional needs, LWiE, while still in the pilot phase, is an effective innovation to garner community support for education and to ensure teachers and children are equipped with the tools to learn and thrive, even in the face of uncertainty. LWiE is based on Save the Children's flagship Literacy Boost model.
