ICEFIL is an International consortium of leading Universities and other Institutions dedicated to advancing the use and impact of innovative learning.
ICEFIL provides a collaborative sharing platform (to our members) to deliver innovative products and services developed and field-tested for the education communities including Universities, School Boards, Research Groups, UN Organizations, International NGO’s plus others.
We facilitate our consortium members to co-create through exploratory research and then implement through new business models to ensure (future) professionals are better trained and more empowered to deliver next generation teaching and learning.
At the request of UNHCR and in collaboration with Vodafone Foundation, HU started a pilot program (this year) to address the critical shortage of secondary school teachers at Kakuma Refugee Camp (Kenya) and nearby regions where only 2% of eligible children have access to secondary schools.
Our aim is to significantly increase the pool of available quality teachers for secondary schools within the region. As part of this effort, it also includes providing them access to quality secondary school course materials online and other digital support.
We have two critical parameters associated within this program:
Scalability: Ensure that sufficient refugee teachers are trained to make a positive difference within the region.
Sustainability: Ensure that we have established a strong network of local partners that can continue with the pilot program in Kakuma plus other regions as the shortage of secondary school teachers is dramatic in most of East Africa.
