CAMRIS Senior Advisor Presents at the 2017 mEducation Alliance Symposium at the US Institute of Peace

The mEducation Alliance Symposium provides a platform to share ideas and build partnerships to advance the use of technology in the education field. CAMRIS Senior Program Manager, Abigail Wilson, gave a presentation on the USAID Mali Education in Emergency Support Activity (EESA) project at this year’s Symposium. She discussed the role of mobile technology in increasing equitable access to basic education in conflict-affected regions of Mali. Using mobile technology, CAMRIS is collecting useful information about the status of schools, teachers, parent-teacher groups, and student enrollment. The EESA project also sends information to citizens in Mali through the “3-2-1 service”, which provides subscribers with information about education, water and sanitation, and gender inclusion.
