WEBINAR ON REACT: BUILDING PARTNERSHIPS FOR EDUCATION IN EMERGENCIES
20 March 2019 from 9:00-10:00am (New York time zone)
You are cordially invited to join GBC-Education and INEE for a webinar showcasing how business and implementation partners can use the Rapid Education Action (REACT) digital platform to deliver much-needed resources to children caught in conflict. The webinar features a panel discussion with expert voices from Education Cannot Wait, INEE, Avanti Communications and ARUP International Development.
REACT is a matchmaking platform that channels support from businesses – in the form of financial and in-kind contributions, technical expertise, and employee volunteers – to NGOs and other organizations providing educational opportunity in emergency situations.
During the webinar, GBC-Education will conduct a live demonstration of the REACT digital platform (www.now-react.org). Attendees will learn how to register for an account and request urgent resources on the website to get matched with and receive support from appropriate private sector organizations.

Hayley Gryc, Associate, ARUP International Development
Panelists will share insights on the importance of public-private partnerships in education in emergencies, lessons learned from navigating the REACT partnership process, and useful tips on how to more effectively work across the sectors to harness meaningful partnership opportunities.
