Kakuma Refugee Camp

InZone started operating in Kakuma Refugee Camp in 2010 with a training course equipping refugees with skills in interpretation. Realizing that there was an interest for higher education courses, the course managers in the camp suggested the introduction of additional courses in other domains. . Since 2013 up to now, InZone has been providing certificate courses under the University of Geneva in global health, global poverty, basic medical training, and others.

Another project focused on improving inclusion by training teachers on how to work with children with disabilities. One major activity that is currently being implemented in Kakuma refugee camp is the Uvumbuzi Tech Challenge, a pedagogic problem-solving exercise based on the design thinking methodology. This project encourages creative people living in Kakuma refugee camp and Kalobeyei settlement to work on practical, technology-supported solutions to problems they have identified.
