Global Activism: Chicagoans Helping Build Classrooms for Refugees in Kenya


The United Nations Association (UNA) helps inspire Americans to support the ideals and work of the U.N. The Chicago Chapter of UNA lives those values through its “Adopt-A-Future” program.  They’re helping raise funds for refugees at the Kakuma Refugee camp in northwest Kenya. Established in 1992, when Sudan’s “Lost Boys” arrived from Ethiopia, today the camp shelters some 185,000 people. UNA-Chicago is raising funds to build classrooms in the Kakuma camp schools. We find out about their efforts from Sana'a Hussein, special initiatives chair for UNA-Chicago.
