Accompanying refugees in camps and schools

In Tanzania, some 320,000 refugees – mainly from Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo – live in the Nyarugusu, Nduta, and Mtendeli camps in the Kigoma region. In each of them, an Ideas Box was set up with Save the Children and Plan International, whose teams were trained in its functionality and implementation. These mobile libraries allow young teens to learn, play, and create once more. Thanks to the help of the facilitators, two skits were for example devised by the teenagers around the themes of school dropout and behavior at school. While some prefer reading workshops in the Ideas Box where they can find tales and legends in their local language, Kirundi, others want to learn how to use computers to better understand software. Some also come to simply review their courses and prepare for their exams.
