5:32 pm
ah. i love that do you remember this photograph. actually oh i don't know if you are but luckily one of my cousins. in the middle there my m t r r r r ok you are not your mom and we show in another picture here. very vibrant wallpaper and who are the kids. one of them is you yes and. that. my little. brothers. and my two cousins and one of things we've been talking about is the possibilities and the potential for refugees i want to show people one more picture here which brings us more up to date and the passion that you have now and how that happened because people don't always think the refugees have a future but your future is incredible your present is incredible tell us how that
5:33 pm
happened and we're eating out i am so i am so. let's try and get i mean i remember coming here i did wanted to you know do something to try to get in this you know in society so i started and i felt really again that and i'm really. one of the main reasons why i strayed in was football everybody who hasn't heard of it it looks a little bit like rugby but don't tell a stray into that. now there are good and great elders. and i think one of the reasons why i thought of. him a lot on the minds of our young you know all young people that come to. call at home now are you not pursue their dreams and you know whatever it is and they want to amuse that young. what's. been one of the.
5:34 pm
by men well me and specially. you know stories that are. you know. i want to share this coming we've just got live on you tube this person says the energy of the young people and it is inspiring i've been there to teach and i always learn so much from them about resilience about faith and hope in a place that people think as a dead end and to illustrate that point just a little bit more we got a video comment from someone in this is john he's the director of the youth voices and the camp and this is what he told us about taking those voices and putting them to good use have a listen. fortunately. so it will. really be a different different culture. you know the different. when they come together. and that's what i. want.
5:35 pm
to. being sued. when you look. around how he mentions nurturing voices a creative place where you can then put their talents to good use and one of those uses is the flourishing business community that we've seen there can you talk to us about that. you know so basically kakuma town itself was a pastoral market and there were these three or four somali trader the came there in the one nine hundred sixty s. so when the camp was built there was there was already an infrastructure of whole import export and as the camp citizens decided that they were not going to remain fully reliant not just for the daily nutritional needs but for their social needs for feasting for celebrations but that they needed more you see all these markets essentially essentially come up and those four or five wholesalers have created
5:36 pm
this extremely efficient system and network of of providing goods across across the cab they help new businesses about they train a lot of different people and and and one of the things is that this commercial economy based on my recess essentially provides that missing link so when you welcome a child into the world or you're saying goodbye to someone who's just parted i mean as much as the food given by the relief mission helps you don't you don't welcome somebody or you don't you don't say goodbye to them with boiled beans and corn you need something that is culturally appropriate and and this commercial economy essentially how to gain that little bit of normalcy sometimes you just want to buy candy for your child sometimes you want to celebrate if thar during the muslim after muslim cross daily and so it helps you to feel normal and through this
5:37 pm
normality you actually gain dignity because you gained some months of the life you had before and you also have a glimpse of the life that you envision for yourself but you're building it in the camp for you're supposed to be transience to realize i can hold through the seventy three such as he comes to places like refugee camps like i should have been and we think i mean paul leaf but there's something about the way that you can your students flat which we. a connection with a community that has a picture here of you at a wedding tell us a little bit more about that oh yes this reading was essentially this is the photo session so i'm standing with the bride and the groom and it was this wonderful day in which of course there was a little bickering between the bride's mother and the groom well you say of course . because obviously with the wedding it's a wedding you know like emotions of rod the two families coming together result you know humans love to make things complex and this was one of those there was
5:38 pm
a last minute the complained about the level of the food and then myself when the groomsmen are all trying to go to the gore adviser grill it's a wedding it could be a wedding anywhere in the world the same wedding function happening there is anywhere a little one of the things you're talking about and you can talk about is the economy of refugee camps like a cooma and recently the i have seen a visit did a report the international finance corporation to report about the level of onto a printer ship that happening to cooma i want to show you the ingenuity creativity of the refugees who live to have a look. i've learned out of the mouth someone you family your group a book i'm sorry. there's a good we could run up to you that you can uniquely not. you got to do good work on my dog when you get over. it well why do you need to borrow my god to look up
5:39 pm
a mile for god while on the out of the only time i was ok i got it. i mean coming from somebody and nobody should i come here because i'm trying i put up this one to collect you can accounts of protocol. internet service provider income. but there were other people so we all know ourselves. i think i know what you're trying to do hail the u.n.h. are trying to do in the well and all these interested parties is to look at refugee camps as not nicely button and people as helpless but as entrepreneurs people who have incredible futures and also we may be rethinking what
5:40 pm
a refugee camp can be and should be because so many of them are now running for a long time decades even is that behind the idea of text cooma is that what you are trying to do just change people's attitudes totally. but we're also trying to change the system in the approach we want to see refugee camps relics of history really. we don't have places where populations just the people who have fled the refugees are sequestered in an isolated spot and have no connection with the host community and we want to see integrated communities and that's what we're doing here it's. there's the older section of the. camp and then there's a new section and it's called column b. and this is something that we really wanted to highlight here it represents our new approach that's going to lobel to refugee response and that is that there are settlements that are built that are completely integrated with the local community
5:41 pm
where the local community benefits and where we attract international development assistance as well as a set as well as private investment and you know we have a governor here and into chronic county which is the county in which cooma is based who is convinced that the presence of refugees has been a tremendous benefit for the development of his county which was one of the poorest in kenya and he's an enlightened politician but we now have the reports like the i.o.c. report that you just showed that prove actually that the economy has grown and that everybody is then a fitting from the presence of refugees this is a message that we want to send globally. and to show also through this tax event here in kakuma i think that's important because as much enthusiasm is there is online we're also seeing reminders this is fred who says life in the camp is full
5:42 pm
of challenges only one percent of the population gets a chance to be resettled overseas meaning that the remaining ninety nine percent has to make themselves comfortable and useful in the camp another person writes and saying what comes to mind when questions to ask is does this mean the camps will never be closed or the camps inhabitants now considered kenyans and will they ever be resettled. i'm wondering when you see tough questions like this what comes to mind how do you respond to people who wonder about what happens to those who aren't able to leave the camps. hardest thing hearing as a former i think she is when people say or ask. why are they all coming here and i mean that's a fair question and it's also important to know that we are among the lucky few that do get to make it you know it's a very small percentage percentage of refugees that do get to resettle in places like america or england and although it's challenging i also am grateful that we
5:43 pm
do have people to ask me those hard questions because it has always kept me in check like that's what motivates me to do my best to work hard in school to make the most out of this amazing privilege that i got because i understand that for my ticket into america i know there's millions of kids that would well never have that opportunity but i think i could also give back and i think it's the refugees who resettled into places like america. the u.k. and places like that that can really take advantage of all the opportunities that their host country offers but also don't forget where you came from don't forget your roots and warrant come back it's important to. really motivate and inspire the kids that are still in the count's that they too have led me on the border is or just a dream beyond the refugee camp and that they can excel if they really work hard. you know what's behind that note. i'm everywhere the limit i think.
5:44 pm
despite all of that you know i says people i live in the western world are using opportunities that we have yet to get back to those two in the refugee camp because they know they need our inspiration and to have that van and having people have a limit that really will highlight that you know what for those kids that anything is possible and you know they can they can live in the refugee camps and the greit and the dream and then have their dreams come true and that's what. melissa used you for to get the whole go ahead but the software almost at the end of the show died yes because this was something that melissa actually spoke about the studies that we did i was part of the economic and social impact study done by the world bank and i led the social impact study and the economists found that the refugee camp the nontrivial six percent to the two
5:45 pm
a common economy and we actually found that people living the true carnal living immediately around kakuma camp have far better health psychosocial stress and their stress is about employment not about food or hunger in their dresses about whether the true the militia will get educated or not and so the economy for the refugee camp has a tremendous net or their benefits on the on the economy and the u.n. this year was really the one that spearheaded the this study got the world bank and academics together and it's a and isn't really an research group to the governor of that that writes that refugees are not a burden but they're actually a positive and do that but that to the question of taxpayers' money i mean the refugees are paying more than their share of the whole thank you so much and adding that economic angle to our conversation i want to show you some of the lineup here for a tax cut to the cabinet here on my laptop here we can see how lima want to leave look at a child what will have story be we have two of them out here what will history say
5:46 pm
there's only one way that you can find out and that is to follow tech became a campaign streaming live on saturday at seven am g.m.t. or ten am east african time will be like no other text her kind of text talks that you've ever seen before good luck everybody involved in not only can i will be watching of course maybe on playback until the next time i see you on line. in afghanistan billions of dollars in international aid have been donated to girls' education but where has the money gone when east meets girls desperate to learn and asks why is the system failing them on al-jazeera. for nine hundred forty six to

people demonstrated peacefully but when the police came they showed that they were prepared in case there was trouble. concerned that they've completely secured the summit site is leaving demonstrators to gather one hundred forty kilometers away and get back city at the gathering itself leaders are calling it the g. six plus one the u.s. against the rest all six u.s. allies in the group of seven of the world's largest economies opposed donald trump's tariffs on steel and aluminum and hope to avert a trade war but that. perhaps trump those in mind he's being isolated today here at matters because these six countries here represent values they represent the economic market with a strong history and certainly also represent a true force on the international level it's the diplomatic equivalent of a family intervention as donald trump prepared to arrive french president. canadian prime minister just to talk about how to talk to the u.s.
5:54 pm
president there's no question that on trade on climate change on some other issues there will be different. it is a perspective but the role of the chief seven is to provide a context to highlight the ways we work together and work through some of the differences and perspectives that trump fired back via twitter saying in part please tell prime minister trudeau and president mccrone that they are charging the us massive tariffs and create non-monetary barriers the meeting could end in a show of unity or a showdown if you are going to carve the world up and you're going to have united states versus rest of world the rest of the world is going to be bigger and it's going to be more important. as the leaders in protesters gather in quebec those watching the g seven around the world remain in suspense wondering whether history will be made inside that meeting or outside john hendren al-jazeera quebec city.
