WHO WE ARE

Refugee Strong knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives.

 

Back in 2020, we realized that by working together we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to launch the non-profit organization.

Education for All

In 2021, we traveled to the Dadaab refugee camps in Kenya. We aimed to empower students living in refugee camps to achieve their educational dreams and strive to embolden and inspire refugee students to continue their studies. With the right resources and support, we hope to continue to leverage education for all.

THE BOOK

When Stars Are Scattered

Omar and his younger brother, Hassan, have spent most of their lives in Dadaab, a refugee camp in Kenya. Life is hard there: never enough food, achingly dull, and without access to the medical care Omar's nonverbal brother needs. So when Omar has the opportunity to go to school, he knows it might be a chance to change their future... but it would also mean leaving his brother, his only remaining family member, every day.
