Hawa Sabriye and HaEun Kim are teachers currently completing their Masters of Education at York University in Toronto, Canada. This April, they are spending four weeks in Dadaab acting as teaching assistants for York courses offered under the BHER project. They will be blogging here about their experiences in Dadaab.
Hawa and HaEun write: We have a passion for education and investigating barriers that prevent access to higher learning—both in urban contexts such as inner-city Toronto as well as settings considered to be ‘education in emergencies.’ Our research is embedded in forced migration and refugee studies from an educational context. The purpose of this blog is to share our reflections, learnings, and future goals related to our work and experience in Dadaab, Kenya, supporting students enrolled in York University’s Borderless Higher Education for Refugees Teaching Certificate Program.
