UNHCR’s ‘Aiming Higher’ campaign to support tertiary education for refugees
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency has organized a 5-month public engagement campaign in partnership with La Mer Dubai which seeks to raise funds for UNHCR’s ‘Aiming Higher’ program to support refugee tertiary education worldwide.
Booth has been set up since November 2021 to engage with the public to raise awareness, and allow visitors to express their solidarity, and provide donations for higher education opportunities and university scholarships to aspiring refugee youth.
Over the years, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for refugees to gain access to higher education, especially considering the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic implications. UNHCR’s latest Education Report shows that only 5% of refugees are enrolled in higher education.
You can transform the life of a young refugee today. Interested supporters are welcome to visit UNHCR’s booth at La Mer Central in front of Virgin Mega Store until March 2022 or DONATE ONLINE to make a difference.
