The Kiziba Refugee Camp in western Rwanda houses primarily Congolese refugees who fled the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in 1996. Of the more than 17,000 refugees, over 8,100 of these are youth under the age of 18, the majority of whom have lived in the camp since birth. Despite the establishment of an upper secondary education program, a large population of young adults remained unable to pursue university degrees. AIR, Kepler, and the University of Maastricht, are partnering to rigorously evaluate the scalability, efficiency, and effects of the Kepler program in Kiziba.
