What is relevant education?

"The very nature of our society is changing. We need to be ready for this change. We need our education to reflect this. And we need to provide our children with the skills and confidence to be able to realize their potentials in this ever changing world".
Emanuel Souvairan is the director of DevEd, an organisation working towards changing attitudes and approaches to education in the developing world through a focus on the delivery of relevant education. Emanuel has worked for non-profits and the United Nations in Afghanistan, India, Switzerland, Uganda and the UK on a series of different humanitarian and development projects such as disaster relief, working with farming cooperatives, drilling boreholes, developing small business initiatives, building schools, flood shelters and roads, setting up microfinance initiatives, research for health and innovation, monitoring and evaluation and developing humanitarian and leadership training courses.
