Education is essential in any community to foster innovation, social and economic development, and hope for a better future. But in Kenya’s refugee camps where school-aged children are desperate to learn, the right to education too often ends at the primary level and too many students compete for the too few spaces in secondary schools let alone the rare opportunity to attend a university or college. WUSC has been working in the Dadaab and Kakuma regions of Kenya with our key partner Windle Trust Kenya since the mid-80s to address these issues by increasing the number of girls attending secondary schools, by improving the quality of education in the refugee camps and by providing opportunities for tertiary education in Canada.
