Kakuma Refugee Camp, Northwestern Kenya. The camp was established in 1992. It is home to 188,000 people who were forced to flee violence, persecution and war. Among the population, 75% are under the age of 25 and more unaccompanied minors arrive every day.
Education = hope. In Kenya, less than 4% of girls attend secondary school. Girls face many systemic cultural and socio-economic barriers to education. Schools are overcrowded with an average of 110 students per classroom.
Morneau Shepell built and financially supports the Morneau Shepell Secondary School for Girls – a boarding school for girls who demonstrate academic promise and are in need of protection. The school opened in 2014 and is home to 346 young women.
