Advocating for Female Refugees Access to Higher Education in Rwanda
Kepler’s WAHED event will focus on advocating for equity in higher education by increasing access to higher education for females with refugee status. This area of focus is chosen because the education system in Rwanda and East Africa lacks the empowerment of female immigrants for accessing higher education.
There is a need to advocate for equitable access to higher education for girls from refugee camps. Female refugees need to access higher education to open the hatch for development in the refugee communities.
– The event will focus on a panel discussion about “Advocating for female refugees’ access to higher education”
this topic will put together people’s minds in learning about the best way to advocate for the female refugees’ access to higher education.
– The second part of the event will focus on women who have been successful in higher education especially from refugee camp perspectives sharing their stories and inspiring other women for access to higher education as men in changing their families’ welfare.
– The final part of the event will be made up of a panel discussion of different heads of organizations discussing how access to higher education for female refugees has transformed the view of the labor market and how hiring refugees is as effective as hiring other citizens.
All in all, the event will be focused on panels discussing the advantages of advocating for equity in access to higher education for female refugees and exposing refugees to the labor market.
