Blossom Hill Fellow Dr. Keith Watenpaugh recently launched the Arabic version of his Article 26 Backpack - a tool to help promote children's human right to education. Having lost essential certificates and transcripts, conflict-affected youth can now pursue their education and jobs by recreating their academic achievements and skills through the Backpack. In addition, language will no longer be a barrier to the hundreds of thousands of young people fleeing war and upheaval in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen who can use the Backpack in English or Arabic to build a narrative of achievement and connect with higher education, scholarships and employment opportunities.
