Across the world, there are examples of refugee communities creating alternative and parallel learning spaces. These refugee-led initiatives range from parent-led community conversations, individual informal schools, and transnationally connected educators shaping curricula in exile or teaching virtually – such as in the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh – to formally accredited private schools, such as among Somalis in the Dadaab refugee camps of Kenya. In this brief, we explore how refugee-led accredited schools in Kenya operate and what we can learn from them.
