Pluralsight One + the Norwegian Refugee Council

By Lindsey Kneuven    |    December 03, 2019

Education is a human right. We believe that all people deserve the opportunity to grow, access quality learning resources and build their skills. And this is especially true for the 70.8 million people displaced around the globe right now. 

When people think of the needs that people fleeing conflict have, they often think of them in a hierarchy—food, shelter and water. But equally important is access to consistent, quality education. Education enables continuity, agency, development and a path toward employment. It creates agency among youth and adults, so they can make informed decisions, access services, advocate for their rights and build a new future for themselves and their communities. 

That’s why on this Giving Tuesday, Pluralsight One is proud to deepen our partnership with the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), a humanitarian, non-governmental organization that protects the rights of people affected by displacement. 

Our Giving Tuesday campaign is focused on raising awareness for NRC’s children and youth education programs. And we’re asking you, our community and team members to join us in support of  children and youth who have been displaced by conflict by making a donation to the NRC’s education programs, which we’ll match dollar for dollar up to $50,000.

The NRC works hard to empower refugees and spread awareness about their situations by sharing stories from some of the most challenging and volatile places in the world. In 2018, the organization helped 8.5M people in need by providing them with life-saving resources like food, clean water, warm clothes, shelter, education and legal assistance to help them claim their rights. 

Pluralsight One’s strategic partnership with the NRC was formed to help create sustainable social impact for displaced and crisis-affected populations around the world, while increasing the efficiency and efficacy of the NRC staff who serve them. We’re helping the NRC digitally transform and improve its ability to use data for decision making. We’re also focused on helping all displaced people gain access to education opportunities. 

Together, we can ensure everyone has the ability to learn and develop the skills they need to create their own future and build a stronger global community.
