1. Great video report from The Hands Up Project on their Palestine-Vietnam project: https://www.handsupproject.org/blog-impact-1/discussing-gender-equality-in-vietnam-through-performing-palestinian-plays
And here’s a bit more on all three British Council funded ‘digital innovation’ projects in Vietnam: Coventry University with Hanoi University of Science & Technology; International House London and Hanoi Pedagogical University 2; The Hands Up Project, International House Belfast and Can Tho University https://www.britishcouncil.vn/en/teach/three-uk-vn-digital-innovation-projects-launched
2. I first mentioned INEE, the Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies https://inee.org/ back in March, in the context of the launch of their EiE-GenKit: A Core Resource Package on Gender in Education in Emergencies https://inee.org/resources/eie-genkit (PDF below this time round!)
At 13:00 UK time on 22nd June, INEE are launching two new publications on girls’ education in crisis-affected contexts: Mind the Gap and Closing the Gap. Webinar info and registration herehttps://rescue.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Ia5ZtlZSSDSkTafYNh6C_g Download links here https://inee.org/system/files/resources/INEE%20Mind%20the%20Gap%20Report%20v1.0%20LowRes.pdf and here https://inee.org/system/files/resources/INEE%20Closing%20the%20Gap%20Brief%20v1.0%20LowRes.pdf and PDFs of both below.
INEE have also just started a podcast on Women and Girls on Learning in Humanitarian Crises https://inee.org/gender/educate-us-podcast
Lots to explore and digest, including the origin of the phrase ‘mind the gap’!
