Kenya: Deck's Dream| 2mins
Director: UNHCR | Producer: UNHCR
Focus Years: 2010 | Country: Switzerland
Having fled the violence in Somalia as a child, losing half his family along the way, Deck has spent 18 years of his life in the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya. As large as a city, with over 260,000 inhabitants, it is a particularly demanding environment for young people such as Deck to fulfill their ambitions. These conditions however will not stem Deck's drive to study hard in view of obtaining an international scholarship to study law abroad. If his plan succeeds, he is determined to return and contribute to restoring peace in Somalia.
