Heshima Kenya at 2nd Annual Regional Course on Forced Migration!

Earlier this month, our Community Outreach Assistant, Mohammed Tahali attended the 2nd Annual Regional Course on Forced Migration organized by The Refugee Consortium of Kenya. The course was in partnership with the Kenyan Department of Refugee Affairs, the European Union, the International Rescue Committee, and Moi University.

The course brought together academics, members of community organizations, and specialist on refugee affairs to share their expertise and learn from one another.

Through out the six-day course, attendees took part in modules, sessions, and experiential learning tours that aimed to provide participants with a critical understanding of forced migration, refugee protection, human trafficking, and internal displacement. The course also included visits to police stations and prisons so that participants could truly grasp how various state actors handle the unique and ever-growing plight of forced migrants.
