“Everything about computers interests me,” says Remy Gakwaya, a 22-year-old Burundian refugee who resides in Dzalaka refugee camp in Malawi. He currently runs the only computer lab in the camp, called Takeno Lab, where he voluntarily teaches other refugee youth how to programme.

“Java, Python, MYSQLITE, Android Development…” Gakwaya lists the programming languages that he teaches his fellow refugees.
