Campaign Story

Education Matters is committed to supporting educational access for refugee students. They have students at USAP Community School, from Tongogara Refugee Camp. In 2020-21 USAP refugee alumni launched TWEENS, a tutoring program and youth center in the camp. This project aims to raise funds for Education Matter to continue covering all costs for refugee students to access high quality and transformative value-based education at the school and to support TWEENS.

At Tongogara Refugee Camp in Zimbabwe a camp of 17,000+ refugees from mainly from DRC, Burundi and Rwanda, the camp school ends with O level/10th grade. Bright and motivated refugee students cannot walk to any other school to complete high school or hope of university and UNHCR and other groups operating in the camp only offer vocational courses such as carpentry. There is no electricity or internet in camp for online learning.

USAP Community School is dedicated to providing a transformative education to talented and motivated young people who have no opportunities to access quality education. They have recruited at the Tongogara Camp and currently have seven refugee students at USAPCS. This project will cover the costs of continuing to include refugee students at the school and offer them bright educational futures as well as support and expand the tutoring and youth center at the camp: TWEENs.

This project will allow refugee students currently with no options to access a high quality education that will open doors for their future. By educating these motivated young displaced people, Education Matters see a deep impact not only on the children and their immediate families, but on the refugee communities from which the children come from. The refugee alumni have excelled at university and have given back with social impact projects and on refugee issues far beyond their immediate communities.
