Protect Higher Education from Attack
InZone supports GCPEA - The Global Coalition to Protect Education from Attack - and UNESCO to express its heartfelt condolences to the families of students who lost their lives or were seriously injured in this attack.
UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova has strongly condemned the armed attack on Garissa University College in Kenya that occurred on 2 April 2015 and has cost the lives of at least 147 students, resulting in a large number of casualties. At a time when operations were still ongoing to lift the siege on the University, the Director-General stated that "this vicious attack against an institution of higher learning is a deliberate attack against the future of a country, against the ambition of students to gain the qualifications to pursue a career and contribute to their nation. It is the quest for knowledge, the freedom to think critically and to question the world– the hallmarks of a university – that is under threat.
InZone continues to be committed to offering higher education programs to learners in the Dadaab region.
