Working with communities and technology to support refugees into higher education.Support us
Why we exist
Today, only 1 percent of eligible refugees have access to higher education, compared to 36 percent of global youth. In the Middle East, this means that 91,000 young people are missing out on higher education.
This limits their potential to become self reliant, integrate and contribute in their host communities and to help reconstruct their country to make it when they return home.
Losing your home shouldn’t mean losing your ability to learn and make the world a better place.
The student journey
We are looking at the end to end learning journey for refugees to develop programmes that help them through each step.
Step 1 Awareness
Peer digital content
Videos, podcasts and blogs about accessing higher education, co-produced by refugees and delivered through social media.
Blended workshops where participants learn about the full range of options for post-secondary education and what options suits their background and ambitions.
Step 2 Preparation
Blended workshops where participants learn how to evaluate options, how to research and apply for scholarships, and create their plan for accessing higher education.
Participants connect with a peers on their preferred higher education option to hear first hand experiences of the course and advice on the application and enrollement process.
Classes employing participatory ‘dialogic’ pedagogies combined with access to mobile apps provide contextualised and accessible language learning opportunities.
Workshops in time management, presentation, independent study and extended writing skills.
Step 3 Enrolment
Prospective students receive training in creating crowdfunding profiles to raise money for tuition fees and/or living costs. Mosaik plans to partner with existing platforms and scholarship providers to maximise impact.
Peer digital content
Videos, podcasts and blogs addressing social and psychological challenges faced by refugees adapting to life as students, all co-produced by refugees already studying and delivered through social media.
How we work
We use participatory methods to design and deliver programmes with refugee communities.
Using a combination of digital content, connected learning systems and social media to ensure these programmes are accessible and scalable.
Building partnerships with local civil society organisations to lead delivery of the programmes working towards a commons of open programme models and resources that support refugees into higher education.
