And on Sept. 28, as part of Solve at HUBweek, three top solutions were selected from the six international semifinalists who presented their proposals to a room full of private, non-profit, and academic leaders, including many from MIT. This first wave of Solve: Learn finalists will receive support from Solve and its partners, with the goal of funding, piloting, and implementing their solutions, and presenting at the flagship Solve at MIT event, which will take place in spring 2017. “I came to the Solve: Learn session to learn more about the refugee education solutions being put forward,” said Christine LeViseur Mendonça, co-founder of Humans on the Move. “I am excited to see the ones that moved forward.” http://news.mit.edu/2016/improving-educational-opportunities-for-refugee-youth-around-the-world-1026
