The tent is up. The chairs are out. The stage is waiting. After months of preparation, a bold vision is set to become a reality. TEDxKakumaCamp, the first ever TEDx event of its kind, will take place this Saturday June 9 in Kakuma refugee camp in north-western Kenya.
“I hope that we will shine a light into a place that was invisible before,” said TEDxKakumaCamp co-curator Melissa Fleming. “And I hope to change the narrative about refugees. Refugees are rebuilding their lives here. The world needs to know in order to show them the compassion they deserve.”
