Open Learning Exchange is working with our Somali partners at the Dagahaley, Hagadera and Ifo refugee camps in Dadaab, Kenya, where Planet Learning has been in use for the past three years. During this time, the platform has been used by more than 5,000 young people within the Community Learning Centres that are run by UNHCR.
Duale is 20 years old and also lives in the Ifo refugee camp. Duale lost both his parents at the age of 10 and his uncle has been caring for him since. Reserved and ashamed of having to repeat class in primary school, having failed his exams many times, he had little hope of continuing his education. The Ifo team thought Duale would benefit from the life-skill course on the Planet Learning system. Kudos to Duale for gaining the strength and self-esteem to complete the course and pass his exam. Duale is now a part of the Towfiq Second School in the Ifo camp!
