The majority of these refugess fled Somalia following the 1991 collapse of the Somali government and the ensuing civil war and humanitarian crisis. In 2011, Somali refugee arrivals into Kenya and Ethiopia increased significantly due to the combined effects of drought, famine and ongoing insecurity in Somalia. (European Resettlement Network)

“For many refugees in Dadaab, peace and education – often the first casualties of ongoing conflict – are the most valuable aspects of life as a camp refugee. Together, they change lives and can compensate in part for the sadness of exile.” (Refworld)

LEARN SHARE INSPIRE

Welcome to my little world of big learning through this wonderful medium of the world wide web. My picture of a giraffe (with thanks to my friend Stephen Walsh for taking this fabulous photo and allowing me to share it) is my idea of “sticking my neck out” and taking on new challenges of eLearning. I hope we can learn, share and inspire together.
