CWTL program is a curriculum-aligned, adaptive learning programme delivered on a tablet, designed to address some of the many challenges of access to quality education in conflict-affected settings, and employs a serious gaming approach and non-specialist facilitators.

To date, multiple mixed-methods research studies on CWTL have been conducted and show promising results, including significant increases in mathematics and literacy competency as well as improvement to multiple dimensions of psychosocial wellbeing.
