Have you looked behind the labels?

This weekend sees the first ever TED conference inside a refugee camp, being held at Kakuma Camp in Kenya,

This conference aims to offer a different lens into the reality of life as a refugee, away from the images of devastation and suffering, and towards stories of resilience, of contribution, of creativity.

Developing empathy, understanding and new perspectives on the lives of those living in refugee camps allows us all to engage with some of the issues happening around us with compassion, insight and humanity - seeing the lives behind the labels.
