Profile of the 2017 Nansen Refugee Award winner
Description: The 2017 UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award winner is Zannah Mustapha, a champion for the rights of displaced children growing up amid violence in north-eastern Nigeria to get a quality education. Mustapha founded a school in 2007 in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State and the epicentre of the Boko Haram insurgency. The school has stayed open throughout the conflict with Boko Haram, which has seen some 20,000 killed across the Lake Chad region, and millions more displaced. The school provides a free education, as well as free meals, uniforms and health care, to children affected by violence. Those orphaned by the conflict on both sides are welcomed into Mustapha’s classrooms as a sign of the reconciliation he hopes to achieve in the region. Mr. Mustapha is a true reflection of the spirit of the Nansen Refugee Award.
