Headwaters Relief volunteers had the opportunity to travel to refugee camps. An important past of our mission is to use educational materials to help people build resilience in the aftermath of natural disasters. Headwaters Relief developed a curriculum to train non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working in the camps so they were better equipped to support others. They could utilize this curriculum to better support refugees by providing therapeutic activities, play therapy, build social skills and develop resilience. There is a saying that knowledge is power. Headwaters Relief strongly believes this statement to be true. Below is an inspiring and humble story of a refugee in Kenya who continues to provide educational support to those in refugee camps internationally.
Along the way, we are inspired by amazing people who are making in impact in others lives. This is story of one man who was a refugee in Kenya and then started a new life in the United States. He is dedicated to helping refugee children have access to education and started a tutoring center. He became blind due to complications with diabetes and adapted his teaching methods and continues to inspire with his dedication and passion for teaching.
