While Adora only joined the international team this past February, she hit the ground running. Thanks to her drive and dedication, she has already led an 8-week train-the-trainer session, enabling the launch of our program in the Kakuma Refugee Camp this past April. Her contributions extend beyond training; she has also created module assessments, final exams, standard academic ethics procedures, grading rubrics, and milestones for our participants to work towards whilst they complete the course.
We sat down with Adora to get to know her a bit better. Adora’s interview has been lightly edited for clarity and accuracy.

Meet Marie, a 19-year-old refugee from Rwanda who graduated from our Nairobi Digital Inclusion Program (DIP) on June 20th. Marie was particularly inspired by the communal aspect of the DIP – she thrived off the infectious excitement of her peers, and appreciated the wraparound support provided by our local partner, RefuSHE, which enabled her to participate fully in the program.
We sat down with Marie to talk about her time in the DIP and her reflections on the program. Marie’s interview has been lightly edited for clarity and accuracy.
