Are Arab countries on track for UN education goals?

04 - Quality Education Share this article Originally published in the Executive Magazine, on 7 August 2019.  A region of renowned civilizations and contribution to humanity, the Arab region has become one of paradoxes in recent times: Young, highly educated, dynamic nations, on the one hand, and multiple protracted armed conflicts, high levels of youth unemployment, volatile and vulnerable states of existence, and extreme inequalities and disparities, on the other. While the region indeed has made tremendous achievements toward development goals, many countries have unfortunately seen their developmental gains significantly reversed, primarily due to the protracted nature of m

rohit1_0.jpg © Verdentum Rohit Pothukutchi, the founder of the software Verdentum, is on a mission to measure the real impact behind development work and making monitoring and evaluation accessible for all. Read more about his thoughts behind the initiative.   “I was really frustrated by the idea of volunteering and not knowing the impact of my actions. What was my drop in the vast ocean of change? Whether it was a tree plantation or a lake clean up. I wanted to know whether my actions made any difference to global issues like climate change – if so, how much? How? Scaling projects seemed impossible and understanding impact seemed even more difficult. Was it even worth spending time doing some of this volunteer work?” “This is why I founded Verdentum.

In Mali, the armed conflict that broke out in the northern part of the country in 2012, between the Government and insurgents, including radical extremist groups, caused a migration crisis. According to recent UN and Government figures, over 135,000 Malian refugees have migrated to neighbouring Burkina Faso, Mauritania and Niger, with many more internally displaced within Mali.  These migrants, especially those who are young with low literacy skills, can be vulnerable to radicalization and to being recruited by violent extremist groups. Prevention through education is key. In 2
