About Can’t Wait to Learn
Can’t Wait to Learn (CWtL) proposes new (cost-) effective solutions to the urgent challenges facing education for children in emergencies. By utilising innovative technological solutions with a focus on serious gaming, CWtL builds on concepts which have been successfully piloted in Sudan (e-Learning Sudan) has ambitions to increase the number of children with access to quality education in mathematics in areas affected by conflict in Africa and the Middle East. In addition, reading and psychosocial well-being –focused materials have been introduced to the CWtL.

Developing fresh, interactive materials based on the national curricula, and creating effective partnership structures to distribute these, creates new opportunities for making education accessible to those children who have been excluded from education. Thus, increasing children’s resilience and thereby, preparing them for a positive future. Further information can be found at: www.warchildholland.org/cant-wait-to-learn
