Kakuma Refugee Camp, Northwest Kenya

Instagram photos and videos at Kakuma Refugee Camp, Northwest Kenya

A South Sudanese refugee farms alongside a member of the local Turkana community on a 3 acre agricultural farm project funded by UNHCR in Kakuma Refugee Camp, implemented by  @actionafricahi.  #unhcr is acutely aware of the livelihoods needs in the camp and through previous assessments had realized the need to have a viable livelihood project in place to support both refugees and host community through agriculture.  Every month 200 households, 30 from the #turkana host community, benefit from the harvesting and sales from the 3 acre farm in Kakuma 2, making an average of over Ksh. 40,000 per month.  Additionally, a total of 156 (77 female) farmers were profiled in September at the Kakuma reception centre out of which 132 were found to have agricultural skills.  #kakuma #agriculture #empowerment #livelihoods #withrefugees#southsudan #partnerships

Mentoring project inspires teachers at vast school in Kenya. “Coaching has really helped me become a better leader.” Yel Luka is one of many teachers who found a mentor through the Teachers for Teachers project.  South Sudanese refugee Yel Luka, 32, was trained through the innovative Teachers for Teachers scheme, and is now headteacher at Unity Primary School in Kakuma refugee camp.  Unity is one of the largest schools in Kakuma refugee camp, in northern Kenya, and the scale of the challenge facing its teachers is difficult to comprehend. Classes of 90 or 100 are common and classes of 200 are not unusual. In such circumstances, engaging and inspiring the students is a daunting task. Staying motivated as a teacher can also be tough.  At Kakuma, help has arrived from a long way off. More than 70 percent of the teachers there have participated in a project called Teachers for Teachers – a training, coaching and mentoring system devised by @Columbia University in the United States.  Mary Mendenhall, an assistant professor of practice at Columbia’s Teachers College, started Teachers for Teachers with funding from @openideo, an innovation platform. #unhcr supported her and her team to pilot it at Kakuma in 2015. Since then, 130 teachers have gone through the programme. “These teachers are really on the front line every day and they can speak to the issues and help one another think through how they can overcome some of the challenges,” says Mendenhall.
