FAWE was among the 1,900 delegates and educators from
around the World who participated at the 58th Annual Conference
Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) conference held in in
Toronto, Canada from 10th to 15th March 2014. The discussions were
centered on “Re-visioning Education for
All” to explore the adequacy and future of Education For All (EFA),
moving them beyond the historical focus on access to basic schooling. FAWE
working jointly with the MasterCard Foundation contributed to the discussion on
creating a positive social change and economic growth through education;
developing Young Transformative Leaders; improving Program Quality through
Learning; as well as formal informal education. The duo presented a
paper on an innovative and holistic scholarship programme that has the potential
to transform young people from beneficiaries to benefactors.
