Ottawa launches global campaign for refugee youth education


On February 8, 2021, the Minister of International Development Karina Gould announced the launch of the Together for Learning campaign. This international initiative is going to promote quality education for refugees, forcibly displaced and host-community children and youth for the next three years. A key part of this initiative will play a newly established Refugee Education Council. The council includes various activists and advocates who are living as refugees or forcibly displaced persons or living in communities that host them. Their knowledge and experience will shape solutions and approaches to help address educational needs.
