According to UNHCR, only 3% of refugees (18-25 years) are enrolled in some form of higher education. For women and LGBTQI persons, the figures are even more bleak. With the average duration of displacement more than 25 years, many are spending their lives in refugee camps and urban slums with few opportunities to advance, sowing potent seeds of despair and discord. The Global Education Movement (GEM), an initiative of Southern New Hampshire University, provides refugees and those most affected by displacement the tools to become agents of change. It is a community-rooted, evidence-based solution to help refugees develop skills, earn accredited bachelor’s degrees and foster connections to meaningful and well-compensated careers in business, humanitarian aid and the global digital economy. Over the next five years, GEM will scale its offerings.
