The Focus of Our Efforts

SUPPORT SERVICES

Through our Support Services, Reusable menstrual kits and underwear were distributed to 600 schoolgirls throughout Dadaab’s form 4 (12th grade) classrooms. Having sanitary and sustainable menstrual hygiene products means one less challenge for refugee girls to overcome and keeps girls safe and healthy. Such necessities not only build safe and sanitary practices, but also fosters dignity, confidence and the ability to attend school and participate in the classroom. Girls education is one of our key areas of focus here at Refugee Strong, and a source of much success for our Non-Profit Organization. Get in touch with us today and see how you can lend a helping hand with this program.

EDUCATION & OUTREACH

Most of our efforts pertaining to this program involve identifying the most vulnerable students and developing a program for them. In 2021 Sixteen students in Ifo, Dadaab refugee camp; 7 visually impaired and 9 with physical disabilities including hearing impairment, stopped attending school due to a lack of accommodations and transportation. Members of Refugee Strong have intervened and are now providing transportation to and from school for these students. 
We would like to extend this transportation service to disabled students living in Hagardhera and Dagahley, Dadaab as well.
We ask for your donation as no child or student should be forced to abandon their education due to a lack of resources. RS continues its mission of making education attainable for students forced to grow up in refugee camps. Thank you to all who have already donated to Refugee Strong! Your donations are what see projects like these into fruition
