How To Help People Impacted By Drought In Northern Kenya
Description: Northern Kenya is experiencing drought and significantly below average rain falls. 2.6 million people are food insecure, and the area has seen a 5-fold increase in food prices, conflict around watering points, loss of livestock and an increase in malnutrition and infectious diseases. UNICEF has recently conducted a mass screening in Turkana, showing that 55% of children screened were acutely malnourished. The IRC’s mobile health teams are reaching remote populations of northern Kenya and treating cases of malnutrition. IRC mobile health team staff are out in the bush for a week at a time, serving the local communities and sleeping outside due to the extreme temperatures. DONATE NOW: The International Rescue Committee helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover and gain control of their future. LEARN MORE

VR 360° Film: Evelyn's Story | Oxfam
Description: "Evelyn's Story" is an inspirational Virtual Reality (VR) film, which will transport you to the middle of a remote village in Kenya. Here you'll meet Evelyn, an 11-year-old girl from Turkana county. Evelyn and her community were facing an extreme water crisis, only getting access to clean water for about two hours every eight days, if at all. Often they'd have no choice but to use whatever water they could find, causing serious waterborne diseases like diarrhoea and cholera. Follow Evelyn in her search for water and experience the incredible impact we can make together to the lives of people living in poverty. Donate here: For optimum viewing, watch on your Samsung smartphone with the Samsung Gear VR headset. Alternatively you can watch with a Google Cardboard headset. Evelyn's Story was made by Oxfam, with support from Filmgraphics, a multi award-winning film production company, and Alt.vfx, a world-leading visual effects and post production company. Original music and sound design was produced by We Love Jam Studios.

Pamela Reeves with Kakenya Ntaiya ─ Education, Opportunity and Prosperity
Description: Watson Institute Senior Fellow Pamela Reeves hosts a discussion with Kakenya Ntaiya, founder of the Kakenya Center for Excellence in Kenya. Engaged at the age of 5, Kakenya was to participate in a female circumcision ceremony as a young teenager and then be married. But she had a different plan. First, she negotiated with her father and willingly agree to be circumcised -- only if he would allow her to finish high school. She continued her education at Randolph-Macon Women's College in Virginia, and went on to get a PhD from Pittsburgh. She fulfilled her promise to bring her skills and her dreams back to her village, and has built a transformative school and holistic educational program for rural Kenyan girls, all of whom avoid female genital mutilation and child marriage as they get a world class education.

Aid Zone: Targeting education for refugee children
Description: Kakuma is among the largest refugee camps in the world. It hosts around 162,000 people, mainly from South Sudan and Somalia. It’s also the camp with one of the highest numbers of unaccompanied and separated children. 14,000 minors have come here alone or with relatives, but without their parents. Kakuma is taking special care of them; the camp’s child care system ensures that unaccompanied children receive the appropriate support. Primary schools in the camp have an average of 140 students per class, in the rest of Kenya the standard is 40. In spite of that, the camp has a 96% pass rate, the highest in the county.
