The Stream

A ‘home’ away from home

Refugee youth living in camps shine a light on fostering community in spite of difficult circumstances.

Between rugby clubs and digital storytelling, refugees are innovating to create a sense of normalcy but can they thrive in the camps? From Kenya to Jordan, the youth behind refugee-led projects join The Stream to paint a picture of community life.
