Museum collections are an untapped resource for humanitarian education. CWB has been collaborating with international museums, as well as international NGOs and aid organizations, to innovate a model that will deliver humanitarian education to refugee populations. We will be creating Learning SITEs that are low-cost solutions to the problem of delivering education for transient and refugee populations efficiently and effectively.
Using visually projected images from ethnographic and natural-history museum collections will become the basis of language acquisition education for refugees and displaced persons. The learning SITEs model is currently under development by CWB and partners. Learning SITEs are non-formal educational centers for both rural and urban development.
