Over half of the 65 million people displaced right now are children, yet only 2% of total humanitarian spend is allocated to education during crises. Given that refugees are displaced for over 12 years means that entire generations often forgo education. In this episode, Grant and Ravi talk with Sarah Smith, the IRC’s Senior Director of Education, a leading expert in education in humanitarian settings. They discuss how to think about education in crisis settings, what models are promising for delivering education at scale, and explore frontier innovations in education - including the IRC’s new partnership with Sesame Street, which aims to bring muppets (and social change) to a generation of refugees and host communities in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq.
