Kenyan refugee camp to host historic TEDx conference

A refugee camp in Kenya will next month host a TEDx event, an offshoot of the global conference on ideas popularly known as TED Talks.

TEDxKakumaCamp at the Kakuma refugee camp in northwestern Kenya will take place on 9 June and is set to be livestreamed, the United Nations refugee agency, UNHCR, said.

It will be the first time a refugee camp has hosted a TEDx event, the agency said.

According to a brief statement on a website specifically set up for the event, “TEDxKakumaCamp offers a different lens into the reality of life as a refugee, away from the images of devastation and suffering, and towards stories of resilience, of contribution, of creativity”.

Speakers from various parts of the world are expected to attend.

The Kakuma camp, set up in 1992, currently hosts nearly 200,000 refugees from South Sudan, Somalia, Ethiopia, Burundi, the DRC, Eritrea, Uganda and Rwanda.

TED and TEDx talks rack up millions of views online every month as speakers share “ideas worth spreading” with a large global audience.

  1. Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
    It’s always interesting to read content from other writers
    and practice something from their web sites.

  2. Does your site have a contact page? I’m
    having trouble locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail.
    I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
    Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it expand over

  3. I want to to thank you for this fantastic read!!

    I absolutely enjoyed every little bit of it.
    I have got you saved as a favorite to check out new things you post…

  4. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it
    can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be
    a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  5. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less.
    I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a
    year and am anxious about switching to another platform.

    I have heard good things about Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content
    into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

  6. Superb blog you have here but I was curious about if
    you knew of any community forums that cover the same
    topics discussed here? I’d really like to
    be a part of online community where I can get feedback from
    other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any
    recommendations, please let me know. Thanks!

  7. Hiya! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My website looks weird when viewing from my
    apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might
    be able to correct this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.

    Many thanks!

  8. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to know a lot
    about this, like you wrote the e book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with a few p.c. to drive the message home a bit, however instead of that, that is magnificent blog.
    A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

  9. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet
    my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy
    reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  34. Hi, just came across this article. Its a brilliant illustration of how small to medium sized companies can use Awards based promotion to get their companies ranked on the 1st page of Google. Awards programmes offer many benefits to participants. After all they bring recognition and you can share the news of your win with your employees, clients, industry peers and target market as much as you like. Additonally awards offer prestige and status, giving potential clients peace of mind that they are working with a reputable company. There are many types of awards programmes, including those that host awards ceremonies (and you pay per table), organisations that award only their members (and you pay for membership and advertising) and those that provide marketing materials. The latter is a great way for those who are unsure about the benefits of using corporate awards programmes because generally nominees and winners do not have to pay a penny to be a participant. Participants often receives online recognition, usually with a reach much greater than their own marketing efforts can offer. Other free benefits can include the use of an press release. Most participants have the option to purchase additional marketing materials to further promote their win, if they wish to, for use in social media campaigns, on their own website, email marketing campaigns or in customer newsletters.

  35. It is my very first time that i have a look at this website. I recently came across countless interesting information in your weblog notably this discussion. Among the numerous responses on your writings, I guess I’m not the only one experiencing all of the excitement right here!
