U of T student refugee alliance raises funds for scholarship in Kenya
For many displaced Somali, Ethiopian and Sudanese refugees, escaping conflict in their home countries means starting over in Dadaab, Kenya—the world's largest refugee camp. Though its inhabitants live in shanties and huts made of refuse, Dadaab has in many ways become a bustling city unto itself, with its own markets, schools and social systems.
Dadaab's community has worked hard with international organizations to provide schooling as a safe space for young people. Until now, that opportunity has only been offered up to a secondary school level.
