Anadolu Agency: Refugees share success stories in Kenyan refugee camp

The first ever TEDx conference in a refugee camp was organized at Kenya’s Kakuma refugee camp in the country’s northwestern region on Saturday.

Originally set up in 1992 to host thousands of the then-Sudanese refugees fleeing from civil war, Kakuma now hosts more than 185,000 refugees from 19 countries — including Ethiopia, Eritrea, Somalia, Uganda, Burundi, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The conference, co-hosted by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), was a unique event, where more than 250 high-profile guests, including ambassadors and ministers, joined over 5,000 refugees at Kakuma camp to listen to stories from successful refugees who are making a change all over the world.
