Dadaab Education Centers Bring Hope to Refugees

Refugees in northeastern Kenya's overcrowded Dadaab camp have few chances to improve their livelihoods.

In October, a Refugees International Board Mission traveled to Dadaab to see the education centers and meet the students there.

Since 2009, Youth Education Pack (YEP) has worked with youths in the Dadaab refugee camp. The four YEP Centers - three in Dadaab and one in the surrounding community - teach practical skills such as carpentry, hairdressing, tailoring, and electronics.
