It is popularly known that Angelina Jolie and her partner, Brad Pitt, adopted a young girl from Ethiopia in 2005. While Zahara may be a part of the Jolie-Pitt family, her mother has become a part of the broader community in Ethiopia. She stands for the rights of women, people affected by HIV/AIDS, and refugees.
Refugees It’s a word. It’s a grouping. It’s millions of people. It’s all over the world. But too often, we forget. They’re a person.For many people across the world, refugee is a familiar term. They picture war-torn families, people fleeing religious persecution, and children shivering in tents.
It is not often that people are given the chance to have a blank canvas, to start something completely new and make what they want from it. Refugees are given a blank canvas when they resettle, but the process of resettlement for a population can take decades. On average, a refugee spends 17 years living in a camp.
CampHire improves my life. It keeps my mind occupied, it allows me to buy additional food and new clothes, and I learned a lot of sewing and business skills. Most importantly, CampHire gives me hope.
I’m simply amazed at how quickly CampHire got started. Great work and we would love to help.
For the first time in history, we have both the means and the will to educate everyone in the world. I’m tremendously excited to see initiatives which will provide on-the-ground support to bring education to places where it was previously unavailable.
