HENRY CONQUERS BEN NEVIS
At the age of just 6 years, Henry Catto must be the youngest supporter of Mobile Education Partnerships. Along with his Mum & Dad (Hannah & Jonny Catto) Henry tackled the highest peak in the UK, raising money for MEP on the way. Ben Nevis sits in the Western Highlands of Scotland and at 1,344m high.
Henry’s feat raised an amazing £1,724 which will go towards the Charity’s work with refugee and forced migrants living in Myanmar and on Thai/Burma border.Read more about Henry's Challenge here

WHAT ARE OUR CURRENT PROJECTS?
A NEW PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN iPac AND MEP
We are delighted to announce that iPac and Mobile Education Partnerships (MEP) have launched a new partnership aimed at raising awareness of and funds for MEP’s work with refugee, displaced and migrant teachers and children from Myanmar.
TEACHER TRAINING WITH MEP
Find out more about how MEP works. We have developed a unique and innovative model of teacher training. Our mobile units work with local refugee and migrant teachers and children at grassroots level forming meaningful partnerships with local teachers and impacting the learning of thousands of children every year.
Building on many years’ experience of working in difficult conditions MEP has created an innovative and effective system of training which is sensitive to differing perceptions of education and cultural and social norms.
We hope that what we do has a human face. I am very proud of the work of our teams and am very happy to talk to you about any aspect of our work.
