Quality education remains the core value to social development, personal development and as well as to poverty eradication. Helping young and adult refugee learners with access to education of good quality would enable them to be influential contributors in the society. Even though it is believed that education is one of the human basic rights; but it remains truly inaccessible to all refugee learners. This is the case with the JC:HEM 2015 admission ongoing process. There are a huge number of refugee learners with the passion to join the program but still the opportunity is very limited to only 35 student. “For instance, we issued over 300 applications and received back over 200 applications and at the end of the day we will have only 35 students to join the program.” Says Kevin Otieno. Actually, there is a need of expanding accessibility to higher education. How might we expand accessibility to post-secondary education for refugees in Kakuma?
"The Diploma in liberal is actually meant to prepare one for further studies." Kevin says.
