How Transformative Pedagogy and Fostering Ethical Reflections Can Support Teachers during Covid-19 for Resilience and Prevention of Violent Extremism

As the sanitary crisis brought up by the Covid-19 pandemic forced almost 90% of the world’s children out of school, teachers are called now more than ever, to reinvent how learning takes place. Educators need to ensure that quality learning reaches children in inclusive and meaningful ways, addressing not only the curricular areas but also the emotional and mental stress that children suffer in these uncertain days.

To respond to this pressing need, Arigatou International Geneva, in partnership with UNESCO International Institute of Capacity Building in Africa (IICBA) carried out a series of four webinars on “How Transformative Pedagogy and Fostering Ethical Reflections Can Support Teachers during Covid-19 for Resilience and Prevention of Violent Extremism.”

Training of Trainers to Reach 8,000 Teachers in the Horn of Africa

Ongoing conflicts and emergencies in the Horn of Africa have hindered regional and global efforts to provide quality education. Deprived access to education among youth has resulted in a rise in extremism and violence. In order to help mitigate the situation and avoid further escalation, a project has been designed, with the support from the government of Japan, to create a critical mass of teachers who can implement effective teaching and learning, producing economically productive and peace-loving youth.
