Kakuma holds a remarkable story; one that embodies resilience, perseverance, dedication, and passion. Meet Yuhana Luka, a young man from Sudan who had always dreamed of making a difference in the world of computers. His journey from humble beginnings to becoming an ICT educator at Resilience Action International (RAI) is an inspiring testament to the transformative power of vocational education. Yuhana's story begins with a simple desire to do some
thing with computers. In a challenging environment like Kakuma, where resources are limited and opportunities scarce, this dream may have seemed distant. However, Yuhana's determination knew no bounds. He started with basic ICT classes, eager to learn and grow. As the days turned into months and the months into years, Yuhana's passion for ICT continued to burn brightly. He didn't stop at the basics; he pushed himself further, advancing his skills and knowledge in the field.
