Teaching Excellence

As UNRWA constantly seeks to improve its educational programme for the benefit of Palestine refugees, it has now launched a new digital platform for distance learning, or Digital Learning Platform (DLP),that will support Palestine refugee student education during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and beyond!

In times of crisis, including global pandemics, our Education in Emergencies programme helps ensure that Palestine refugee children can continue to access their right to quality, inclusive and equitable education. With the increasingly volatile situation in the region - COVID-19, the conflict in Syria, the blockade in Gaza and the ongoing occupation in the West Bank, the financial meltdown in Lebanon and the economic hardship in Jordan  – the delivery of education to Palestine refugees living in areas of crisis is a continuous challenge.  Our response is to strengthen the UNRWA education system and complement it with innovative approaches to respond to new and challenging contexts.

It provides students, parents and teachers with a safe and easy way to access remote learning materials and supports review processes to ensure high quality content and alignment with UN values and UNRWA education objectives.
