Challenge

Due to a tulmoltus climate of war in the region Kakuma has become a safe haven for refugees. In Kakuma 4, IsraAID currently focuses its efforts, on building the capacity of women and youth while offering support to the most vulnerable within the camp including new arrivals. Lack of proper sanitation and hygiene education along with violence and poverty, make Kakuma a difficult place to live.

Solution

IsraAID has been working in Kakuma refugee camp since 2011, focusing on capacity building in different fields including water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). women's empowerment and livelihoods, as well as psychosocial support. Refugees living in the camp as well as members of the host community are in need of educational and vocational training in order to create for themselves a gateway to a future the vicious circle of poverty and dependency.

Long-Term Impact

By providing training and support for refugees and the host community to be self-reliant and self-sufficient, IsraAID is able to create a lasting impact. The long-term effects of this holistic approach can be seen throughout the camp from the child friendly spaces, to the working sanitation systems. IsraAID is currently working with tens of thousands of refugees, encouraging anyone who is motivated to join in.
