On April 20, the UNHCR said that three Somali refugees graduated from the UNHCR's unique higher education scholarship programme went back to school to educate a younger generation of the Somali refugees in Kenya.
The three graduates, Aden Yusuf Mohamed, Ahmed Aden Hassan and Hish Mohamed Maow have spent the past two years studying at the Nakuru Teachers Training College. They had advantages of grants provided under the Albert Einstein German Academic Refugee Initiative (DAFI).
The programme started in 1992 and sponsored by the German government. In March, Germany signed an agreement with the UNHCR to continue its cooperation on DAFI.
The UNHCR said, "The newly qualified teachers have started working at primary schools in the sprawling and crowded Dadaab refugee complex in north-east Kenya." There are three camps in Dadaab and they are house almost 300,000 mainly Somali refugees.
The three Somali graduates completed their primary and secondary education in Dadaab. They graduated from the teacher training college among the top 20 out of 500 students in their year group. After graduation, the three Somalis expressed their hope to continue learning and studying to become secondary teachers in the near future.
The UNHCR estimates that 12,000 refugees have benefited from DAFI scholarships since the launch of the programme in 1992. The students have awarded scholarships to study "wide range of subjects for terms ranging from one to four years at universities, colleges and polytechnics in their host countries."
More than 30 countries, including Kenya, are currently taking part. Around 100 refugees have completed courses in Kenya under DAFI scholarships and joined an important alumni association.
The international refugees' agency said that the programme started offering scholarships to refugees considering repatriation in their countries of origin since 2008. "The DAFI programme contributes to skills development, empowerment and academic achievement as part of a broader UNHCR strategy of promoting self-reliance and durable solution for refugees."One dollar could educate a child not to become a terrorist.
