Roland Kalamo

Roland Kalamo is currently a JWL Liberal Studies diploma student at Kakuma refugee camp located in Kenya. Yet, he has already started implementing the knowledge he has gained in the program back into his community. Kalamo says, “I have learned to listen to people who don’t agree with me or my ideas and seek to find common ground. With this ability, others refugees and I have founded MYPEACH (Movement of Youth for PEAce and CHange). Our organization aims to empower young people by training them in human rights, peace building and conflict resolution, and to nurture their talent by training them in cinema, arts, journalism, music, sports, different languages and in entrepreneurship so that they can become self-reliant.” Kalamo also presented at UNESCO’s 2017 Mobile Learning week in Paris, providing a voice for the needs and obstacles mobile education must address to help a refugee student.
