Other IOC Initiatives: Education

Other IOC Initiatives: Education

15 July 2008

Education plays a crucial role in refugee camps, not only as an instrument to build and sustain society, but as a way to prevent idleness, reduce frustration and create a sense of normalcy among the community.

In fulfilling this task UNHCR and IOC are dedicated to strengthening and building the capacity of the community, supporting the possibilities of a stronger sense of self-reliance. While the challenges are formidable, we see great hope and promise in the community as well as our partners in fulfilling this vital task.

The IOC has contributed to this task by building schools in Dadaab, Kenya, and Chad.
