Only 2 out of 10 refugee adolescents, attend school. (Source: Refugee education in crisis: UNHCR.) In an effort to combat this problem in Jordan, which is home to one of the largest refugee populations, COWF and online learning platform Abwaab partnered to help refugee adolescents continue their high school education at their own pace regardless of their circumstances.  A first of its kind initiative, COWF is the only non-profit in Jordan partnered with an accredited education platform.  As of October 2020, we have successfully enrolled and launched two cohorts.   Three additional cohorts will be joining our program in December and January 2021.

COWF Partnership with invincinkids

Through immersive VR technology, together with invincikids, COWF is delivering access to immersive experiences to children with, physical, emotional and psychological trauma to provide therapy  through the invincikids platform, instead of traditional medicines and professionals that are not available and or hard to come by.  In March 2021, COWF launched a pilot test on the Syrian border with refugee children lacking access to any form of therapy and or medicines in an effort to help with PTSD and or anxiety related disorders. 

COWF COLLABORATION LAUNCHED WITH WOMEN IN DATA SCIENCE "WIDS" EDUCATION OUTREACH @STANFORD UNIVERSITY

Launched remotely in collaboration with WiDS at Stanford University December 7th, with refugee students from Yemen, Syrian and Sudan from across Jordan. A learning experience offered to COWF clubs, chapters and beneficiaries, WiDS education outreach is committed to equity and access for students. We strive to inspire secondary school students to take relevant courses and consider future careers involving data science, artificial intelligence (ai) and other related fields. The Women in Data Science (WiDS) initiative aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and to support women and girls in the field. 

COWF'S 2030 SDG AGENDA FOCUSED ON REDUCING DISPARITIES IN GLOBAL HEALTH AND EDUCATION

No one yet knows how COVID-19 will fundamentally reshape our global society or for how long. As we’ve seen since March 2020, the ability to communicate and collaborate with peers and those communities dependent on foreign aid in multiple forms from around the world is a necessity to continue our mission. 

We are reshaping our mission to address the heart of the problem by scoping and adapting to accelerate the use of transformative technologies and connectivity to share knowledge and bridge resources both in developed and underserved communities globally.
