Kakuma is the site of an UNHCR refugee camp. Population resembles that of a midsize city. With average displacement lasting around 20 years, the only educational opportunities for youth in the camp will be those provided by the organisations on the ground. In order to attempt to diminish this gap, Sky School has partnered up with organisations in the camp.
Due to the size of the camp, Sky School has partnered with two organisation as to respond to high demand for secondary education courses.
