The annual WISE education summit in Doha, Qatar has reiterated its commitment to providing education for the estimated 61 million children across the world who don’t have access to even basic primary education. To reach this goal, Sheika Mozah, the chairperson of the Qatar Foundation, has launched a programme called: “Educate a Child”.
Students and schoolchildren also have a voice at the summit. Last year’s generation of Learners will present the findings of their year-long research on the theme of Increasing Access to Relevant, Quality Education for All Learners through Innovation at WISE 2012.
Some of the most impressive education projects feature in this year’s edition of “Learning a Living: Radical Innovation in Education for Work”.
