During the pandemic lockdowns, for the international development community and families around the world, one of the most pressing questions was: how can we ensure minimal disruption to children’s learning?
For families without access to the internet, television and even a radio in some cases, the question was even more crucial – how can we prevent these already marginalised children from being further left behind?
In these circumstances, the Aga Khan Foundation, through the Schools2030 programme, set about conducting a series of Human-Centred Design workshops engaging around this important topic. The three videos below demonstrate the power of this process, which supports communities to co-create and innovate unique, sustainable and contextually relevant solutions to their unique challenges and circumstances. What was most compelling to understand was that not only did the innovations achieve their intended impact of supporting continued learning for children and young people, they also elevated the status of those involved and brought whole communities even closer together.
We hope you enjoy watching.
