"Since I started attending this training...I have started to think about Karenni state and how to regain our basic rights, which we have lost.”
News in February 2022 is that access to Karenni camp 1 is closed because of a number of cases of COVID-19 being detected inside camp. This means the temporary closure of all schools inside camp, from primary, secondary, and post-secondary education, including classes at KSDC.
REI hosted an online adventure into food traditions and shared culture with Chef Musa Dağdeviren in Turkey. Chef Musa is a world-renowned chef. His vision of a borderless food culture uniting humanity throughout its civilization was at the core of the event.
The students in the HEART Club at K International School are an inspiration in their enthusiasm to raise awareness and funds to support refugees.
What I cherish my internship with REI/RIJ the most is that this experience helped me discover my passion in humanitarianism and that I too, as an individual can make a difference through various means.
My experience with REI inspired me to become involved in the immigrant rights movement in the United States when I returned to Philadelphia from Tokyo. Ultimately, my time at REI inspired me to "think globally, act locally."
REI has had people from many different backgrounds. It doesn't matter if you're a graphic designer, software engineer, or music studies major, if the international humanitarian sector is something you feel passionate about I would highly recommend you join REI's pursuit to empower the refugees we serve through our programs.
For anyone considering applying for an internship at REI, my only advice is; just go for it! It is a great place to work and you will meet fun, inspirational and intelligent people. REI has a lot to offer
