Kenyatta University Dadaab Centre was established in July 2012. One of the centre’s mandates is to identify and develop academic and professional programmes for students in Refugee camps. The target group goes further to include those working among refugees i.e. the UN agencies, Government officers and the host community.
KU Daadab Centre's vision is to be a centre of excellence in the Education and Empowerment of refugees, host community and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), with the mission of empowering refugees, host community and IDPs through: tertiary education; research linkages and partnerships; humanitarian services; resource mobilization; advocacy and networking; conflict management; post conflict reconstruction and reintegration.
