A female student sits in the yard of the Central Primary School in the Hagadera refugee camp during morning prayers. Nearly 250,000 people have pushed the refugee camps of Dadaab, Kenya to their brink. The camp is now one of the largest and oldest refugee camps in the world. The vast majority of the refugees came from Somalia whose boarder lies only 85km away. With perpetual instability in Somalia there exists little to no hope of resettlement for these refugees. Some of the children who were born into the camp are now 17-years-old.
