TRIPLE JEOPARDY AND LIGHT DESPITE ALL

Young Somalis displaced from the war in their country, living in poor conditions in a refugee camp and with a complete vision loss; a triple jeopardy, an unfair destiny, for such early lives. They patiently learn Braille every day in ‘Horyal’, a primary school that means ‘showing the path’, a revealing possibility that despite all odds casts some light in in a road strewn with obstacles. This is Dadaab the Refugee Camp with nearly 250 thousand people at the border between Kenya and Somalia; a ‘city’ the size of Nice in France, or Bari in Italy
