Conflict Zone - 1st place (tied), Winner
Natural disasters, health crises like Ebola, and country conflicts including the ongoing war in Syria can severely disrupt the delivery and quality of children’s education. Even after the conflict subsides, interruptions in education can have long-term consequences on student enrollment and retention in school, as well as their cognitive, academic and socio-emotional development.
The Big Idea
ENEZA, a mobile SMS study tool, supports primary school children in accessing education materials for every subject on the syllabus, topic specific quizzes, and content tutorials/mini lessons. Students also receive explanations to ensure they understand why they got the correct or wrong answer. The study tool comes with additional services like auto-quizzes, Wikipedia search, a live ask-a-teacher feature, and reports on their performance.
