Hello ! Welcome to the new Resilience Collective newsletter.
Happy New Year to all! Let 2022 be a beautiful and innovative year. But stay cautious and positive, and remember that together we are always stronger.
Here, you will learn about the latest developments and newcomers to our Collective. You will also be able to find out what we are doing within the RIFs and who are the champions of innovation and resilience.
First of all, maybe you’re wondering what the Resilience Collective is. No worries, we’ll explain! We are an international collective of humanitarian agencies and universities. We seek to deploy digitalized child-friendly spaces along migration routes and in refugee/displaced camps. Wow ! This digitalized and innovative accompaniment we do through the pilot concept of Resilience Innovation Facility (RIF).
But then, what is a RIF? Good question! A RIF is a safe and inclusive hybrid space for protection and innovation. It adapts according to the context and targets, meaning that its tools, services and connections are always designed for and with children and youth. Primordial, their rights are always respected and safeguarded. And what does a RIF seek to do? Well, with innovative methods and services, a RIF aims to strengthen children’s and youth’s agency, empowerment, and resilience by giving them access to resources, tools, learning, activities, and experiences that enable them to seize development opportunities and unleash their own potential.
So much for the theory, now what’s going on in these RIF? Here are some news from 2021.
