Our Global Education Movement (GEM) team hit the ground running in 2018, beginning the work of getting educational sites up and running in Malawi, Kenya, Lebanon, and South Africa, and tending to our growing population of learners in the Kiziba Refugee Camp in Rwanda. I’d like to take a moment, on behalf of the entire SNHU community, and especially our GEM team, partners, and students, to thank our donors. Your leadership will help us launch this initiative, and your generosity will affect students across the globe, empowering them to improve their lives through the transformative power of education. Thank you.
Bringing a college education to students in refugee camps has the potential to change the world — and might just revolutionize higher education in the United States.
We are excited to serve the refugee community. We know how hard it is to pursue tertiary education when you have refugee status.
There are currently 68.5 million displaced people worldwide. Today, on World Refugee Day, SNHU is proud to introduce Julia Oduol, an SNHU student currently living and studying in Cape Town, South Africa. A recent associate degree graduate, Oduol is now earning her bachelor’s degree in business.
