Education

The Education department aims to increase access to quality education delivered in a safe space for refugee children. We believe that education provides protection and is the best possible tool to help refugees access equal opportunities.

By working in solidarity with community-run organisations, schools, national and international education bodies we are successfully able to deliver pioneering programmes to thousands of students across East Africa. We achieve this through school sponsorship, scholarship programmes, extra-curricular activities, teacher trainings and using innovative pedagogical approaches that enhance children’s learning opportunities in urban and settlement settings.
