Our program’s main focus is to promote education for refugee children in the  South Sudanese Community in Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya.

How ISMH Started

In Kakuma Refugee Camp, there are Naath children who perform well in primary school but lack support to afford good high schools; and therefore end up not fulfilling their potential. For this reason, a group of World University Service of Canada (WUSC) and Albert Einstein German Academic Refugee Initiative (DAFI) students came up with a way to help needy primary school graduates get access to good education and reward their hard work.

Our Main Goals

I Stretch My Hand is involved in several activities that promote education. As an organization,
we prioritize funding school fees and mentorship programs.

Topics covered by the team were: Career guidance, scholarship opportunities available in the camp, girls motivation and extracurricular activities.
