In 2015 Koen Timmers, a teacher from Belgium, started to teach refugees via Skype. He shipped his own laptop and an internet connection to the Kakuma Refugee Camp. This camp is based in Kenya and is home to 169.,000 refugees. They all fled from war and hunger in several African countries.
At this moment the project – endorsed by Charlize Theron, Jane Goodall and HRM Princess Esmeralda – unites teachers across 75 countries and has its 2 own Innovation Lab Schools an 4 educational programs.
