Join this Conference Call
More than half of the world’s 25.4 million refugees are children. They often spend years, if not their entire childhoods, displaced. What does this mean for early childhood development? How are they affected by lack of access to education or psychological help? And how does toxic stress impact the rest of their lives? Join us on Wednesday, February 27, at 10 a.m. EST (4 p.m. CET) for a 30-minute conversation with Kate Radford, program director of War Child’s e-learning platform Can’t Wait to Learn; Lynne Jones, writer, aid worker and visiting scientist at FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University; and Sweta Shah, global lead of early child development for the Aga Khan Foundation. The call will be moderated by News Deeply’s CEO and executive editor, Lara Setrakian.
