About Can’t Wait to Learn


Can’t Wait to Learn (CWTL) proposes new cost-effective solutions to the urgent challenges facing education for children in emergencies. By utilising innovative technological solutions with a focus on serious gaming, CWTL builds on concepts which have been successfully piloted in Sudan.


Can’t Wait to Learn has the potential to provide out-of-school children with access to education opportunities, especially in rural areas where no formal schools exist. The programme uses education technology as part of a model of education which is offering certified curriculum level content through applied gaming and personalised pupil engagement. The programme uses a range of innovative, results focused approaches: combining context specific applied gaming and community-based facilitation instead of waiting for formal schools to be built; a strong innovation management staged approach to growth with rigorous appropriate research; and focusing on getting the right partnerships in place.


Purpose of the consultancy

For various communications purposes, War Child’s Can’t Wait to Learn is developing video content illustrating several aspects of the programme in Lebanon.


The filmmaker candidate will produce:

  1. A short (approx. 2 minute) video illustrating the Can’t Wait to Learn programme in Lebanon, based on an interview of Can’t Wait to Learn programme manager in Lebanon covering several aspects of the programme, as well as footage of the context and of the programme being implemented.

This will be (partly) scripted. The filming includes:

  • An interview with programme manager in Lebanon
  • The context in which the programme is being used
  • The actual implementation of the programme, including involved facilitators and children, possibly with one or two quotes or reactions of some of them.

This video will be edited by the film maker.


  1. Lebanon’s programme manager contribution to a broader fundraising video. This will be scripted based on the approved script of the fundraising video which is currently being developed. No editing needed.
  2. A short encouragement video for participants of War Child’s Kili challenge spoken by Can’t Wait to Learn programme manager in Lebanon (straight to camera, 10 to 20 second message). No editing needed.



  • All video to be made in English, as will reporting and communication with War Child head office
  • Quotes from children and/or facilitator can be recorded in Arabic, in which case film maker should also provide adequate translation/subtitling
