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.

Refugee Returns from Kenya to Somalia and the Threatened Closure of the Dadaab Camp
Description: Dec 1, 2016: Kenya is host to more than 334,000 refugees from Somalia who have fled the violence of the al-Shabaab terrorist group. More than 260,000 of those refugees live in the Dadaab refugee camp, making it the largest refugee camp in the world. In March of this year, the Kenyan government announced its intention to close Dadaab, as well as other camps housing Somali refugees in Kenya, citing the “economic, security, and environmental burden". With no alternative options, some refugees have been coerced into repatriating to Somalia, where insecurity and an ongoing humanitarian crisis continue. Yarnell and RI President Michel Gabaudan travelled to both Kenya and Somalia to meet with Somalis still in Kenya and those who had returned home to better understand the dangers Somalis will face when Dadaab is closed.

Safety Net Programs in Kenya Support Orphans, the Elderly and Persons with Disability
Description: Since 2000, there has been steady economic growth and modest rises in incomes in Kenya. However, high rates of poverty persist, particularly among vulnerable groups such as children (especially orphans and vulnerable children), older people, people with severe disabilities and food insecure households. With the support of IDA – the World Bank’s fund for the poorest – the Government of Kenya is increasing harmonization and consolidating of four cash transfer programs that support Kenya's most vulnerable households. This approach is contributing to improving coordination between the different programs, reducing duplication across programs, improving operational efficiency, increasing coverage and improving timely payment of benefits.
