The Teacher Kids operation, part of the #school4all campaign, aims to show that children with disabilities have talents and abilities to share and why it’s vital to help them access school and build a future for themselves.

A digital platform

A digital school that’s open to all, the teacherkids.org platform aims to highlight these talents. Children and their parents are asked to share a video in which children teach others what they know how to do..

Neymar Jr. shows how we can all learn from children with disabilities

This operation was launched in conjunction with Brazilian footballer Neymar Jr. By taking on the role of a student learning sign language, origami, dance and relaxation techniques, Neymar Jr. wanted to show the world how we can all learn from children with disabilities.

This makes Neymar Jr. the first Teacher Kids student.

1/5 Syrian Refugees has disability

More than 60% of the Syrian refugee households include a person with disability, and 1/5 of refugees in Lebanon and Jordan have a disability, according to a new study by HI and iMMAP[1]. The survey ran from 2017-2018, and so far has resulted in two reports, four factsheets and a Data Dashboard that provide statistical figures on people with disabilities among Syrian refugees and their access to humanitarian aid. HI Regional Inclusion Technical Coordinator Yahoko Asai explains the study’s importance:

 

[1] IMMAP is an international NGO that provides professional information management services to humanitarian and development organizations by collecting, analyzing, and visualizing data, which enables them to make informed decisions to ultimately provide high-quality targeted assistance to the world’s most vulnerable populations.
