InZone brings Higher Education to refugee camps

InZone featured in University of Geneva's CAMPUS magazine

InZone's work bringing Higher Education to refugee camps is featured in this month's edition of the University of Geneva's CAMPUS magazine.

In a three-page article, written in French, the CAMPUS magazine discusses InZone's efforts to install locally-designed learning hubs in Kenyan refugee camps, offer blended higher education courses including training for humanitarian interpreters and a MOOC on humanitarian communication, and partner with international institutions, NGOs, and universities to innovate in fragile contexts.

The article also overviews InZone's efforts to provide access to Higher Education for the 180,000-person French-speaking community in Kakuma. It concludes by noting pioneering efforts to accredit courses designed by DisasterReady.com.

As Barbara Moser-Mercer notes, in this new model, "the sky is the limit."
