Sherkole Refugee Camp

Assosa, Ethiopia

Designed and developed creatives including audio interviews and story based narratives using images.

A commission by a University College London student, conducting research on Communities of Practice (CoP) amongst teachers of refugees in Assosa,  Eastern Ethiopia.  The research took place in a camp where approximately 20,000 refugees have been living for on average 17 years.  The refugees come from a diverse range of cultures including Sudan, South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo and Eritrea.  The teachers taking part in the research were all from the refugee population and have had very little formal input on teaching methodology. Soolkaama was commissioned to sensitively document the research taking place and record a clear picture of the context of the refugee camp and the primary school.
