Hi Everyone

Just altering you all to a new blog by Constance Bommelaer in
Huffington Post today.

Great insight on how the Internet plays a crucial role in education -
especially in times of conflict.  If you can't bring a child to
school, it can help bring the school to the child.

" . . . the world is experiencing the highest levels of displacement
ever recorded. UNHCR estimates that 24 people were forced to flee
their homes each minute in 2015, four times more than a decade ago.
Among the world’s refugees, 51 per cent are children, many of whom are
travelling alone and have stopped going to school."

Here's the blog.
