Somali Youth Share Stories for World Refugee Day

During the commemoration of the World Refuge Day on 20th June 2010, some Somali and Ethiopian youth were sponsored by AFSC to exhibit pieces of their photography, creative projects and cultural dances in Nairobi. The groups travelled long distances from Daadab refugee camp and from the Ogaden region of Ethiopia to share in Kenya's capital, a regional hub.
