What We Do
- WHERE WE WORK
Welcome Message from Carol Jenkins
For more than 90 years, World Learning has equipped individuals and institutions to address the world’s most pressing problems. We believe that, working together with our partners, we can change this world for the better.
On my travels, I’ve had the opportunity to meet with many of those who have joined us in this mission. In Baghdad, we’ve trained more than 2,300 Iraqi youth who are already giving back at home. In London, our partners in the TAAP Initiative strongly believe that we are all responsible to practice inclusion. And in Vermont, our Experiment in International Living and School for International Training participants prove every day that they have the tools and the determination to change the world.
Please join us in our pursuit of a more peaceful and just world.

The Education in Emergencies: Education for Action (3EA) Measurement and Metrics initiative seeks to ensure quality learning for marginalized children by facilitating stakeholders’ ability to demand and invest in, generate, communicate and use evidence to support children’s holistic learning and development in crisis contexts.
Education can only contribute to inclusivity and equity in society by ensuring quality learning for the most marginalized children: those displaced by crisis and conflict as well as those in host communities under strain.
Since its inception in 2017, the main aim of this program is to develop a social-emotional learning (SEL) tool to measure the SEL of students in Lebanese primary schools. This will allow us to build a robust tool to identify the social-emotional needs of primary school-going children in Lebanon and will help efforts to nurture the needed support at the classroom, pedagogical, and school level as a whole to ensure the acquisition and development of children’s core social and emotional skills.
- Develop, adapt, test and use data from a measure of children's holistic learning and development for national/sub-national monitoring purposes
- Increase the capacity of the 3EA partnership to provide guidance on how to select, adapt and administer measures, and to analyze and communicate the resulting data
- Identify, pilot, collect data, and build DOPS and CERD capacity on a priority set of constructs to be part of the SEL measure development
- Disseminate project research findings
