KENYA: Civil Society Side Event of TICAD VI at Laico Regency Hotel in Nairobi, 11h-12h30, on 26 August 2016



In Africa, over 4 million people are forced to flee their own country and live as refugees in exile. Social stability is one of the three thematic issues focused in TICAD VI. Refugees are victims of conflicts and vulnerable to be protected but at the same time they should be empowered to become the driving force for peace and stability tomorrow. How international community and Japan can support empowerment of refugees?

In this event, we will hear the voices of refugees in Kakuma refugee camp, Kenya and introduce humanitarian assistance projects in Kakuma.
