Maysa Jalbout is on a mission to promote a more inclusive and transformative education ecosystem in the Arab world. Her inspiration comes from within the region – starting at home with the hundreds of out-of-school refugees and brilliant youth she has met, and the generosity of Arab philanthropists. This talk shares the stories, innovations, and new forms of collaboration that underscore the power of education to give hope, build resilience, and unleash possibility.
