Education is an inaccessible right for millions of children worldwide who are living in war-zones or affected by conflict. And yet as the building blocks of learning and self-development, literacy and numeracy acquisition are the key to unlocking these children’s potential and changing their future. Can’t Wait to Learn – a custom-made educative gaming technology solution - has been developed through years of testing and research. Findings to date show that Can’t Wait to Learn works; children learn, and they learn fast. We designed it to tackle the specific challenges that children in different conflict settings experience: from the game design, which is co-created by children to be culturally, contextually and curricula appropriate, to hardware designed for use in low-resource and harsh environments. The model demonstrates improved and faster learning outcomes and psychosocial benefits at a lower cost than other approaches and can offer a brighter future for millions of children.
