Project LernEars / Education Service

Project LernEars
Project LernEars

Project LearnEars enables education for displaced children.
The core insights generated in a research on education for displaced children in Lebanon are, that 180 500 children don’t have any access to education. The average duration of displacement is about 20 years.
The approach is to offer a free education service which provides an audio-learning tool and a veriety of different lessons.
The content is ethical controlled and democratically created.
Once there is an infrastructure, the single LearnEar is produceable for under 10$.
Project LearnEars helps children to gain basic knowledge and skills for their daily life and their future.
