Refugees in northeastern Kenya's overcrowded Dadaab camp have few chances to improve their livelihoods. A few model organizations supported by the United Nations Refugee Agency are trying to change this by providing the refugees with education and job skills training.
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.
