The Global Education and Skills Forum opened in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai with the Theme, ‘Who’s Changing the World’. GESF2019, brings together more than 2,200 delegates from 144 countries across the world, who join educationists in discussing various challenges in the education sector through very insightful and informative sessions.

During the open plenary, Rohingya refugees made an emotional plea to the world to do more in support of giving education to refugee children. They elaborated on challenges refugees face due to lack of education and requested more attention is given in educating refugees than sympathy.

Ghana’s Hon. Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, who was present at this year’s GESF, spoke about the reforms being undertaken in the education sector and the role technology plays in enhancing the intellectual growth of children and teachers as well.

This year’s Global Teacher Prize award was won by Kenyan teacher, Peter Tabichi, who aside being an exceptional teacher, gives part of his salary to assist in caring for the needs of his students.

Brother Peter Tabichi has been praised as an “exceptional teacher” who gives away most of his salary.

The Varkey Foundation believes every child deserves a vibrant, stimulating learning environment that awakens and supports their full potential. They believe nothing is more important to achieving this than the passion and quality of teachers.
