Education in Crisis: Street Child and Infosys Partner to Bridge the Gap

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Street Child and Infosys held an inspiring conversation on the importance of investing in education.

The World Economic Forum in Davos became a platform for a powerful discussion on education in crisis. Street Child and Infosys joined forces to illuminate the critical need for investment in this area, particularly after emergencies disrupt children's learning. The scale of the challenge is staggering: 222 million crisis-affected young people require educational support. This includes a staggering 78.2 million children completely out of school, with 84% residing in regions facing protracted crises like Afghanistan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Pakistan, and Ukraine, where 5.7 million school-aged children have already been impacted.

The conversation wasn't just about highlighting the problem. It delved into solutions – specifically, how technology and innovation can bridge the gap and get these children back on track. A prestigious panel, featuring Panellists included Inderpreet Sawhney, Infosys Group General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer, Adele Raz, the last Afghan ambassador to the US; Tom Dannatt, CEO and co-founder, Street Child; Enrique Rodriguez, EVP and CTO of Liberty Global. The discussion was moderated by Andrew Jack, Global Education Editor of Financial Times. This wasn't just a talk; it was a call to action. The panel convened influential attendees and decisionmakers to share best practices and encourage actions to drive change within their respective domains.
