About the event
TEDxKakumaCamp offers a different lens into the reality of life as a refugee, away from the images of devastation and suffering, and towards stories of resilience, of contribution, of creativity.
Stories that uplift and inspire not just the communities that host them but the entire world. The theme, Thrive, supports our belief that empowered refugees can shape a peaceful and tolerant future of our world. The host of the event is Melissa Flemming, Head of Communications and Chief Spokesperson at UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.
