The challenges of providing quality education to refugees are particularly pronounced in Kenya, which hosts hundreds of thousands of refugees in Kakuma and Dadaab, the largest refugee camp complex in the world. AIR is partnering with the World University Service of Canada and its local partner Windle Trust Kenya to rigorously evaluate the impact of the Equity in Education in Refugee Camps in Kenya program, which provides remedial education to grades 7 and 8 girls.

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.
