Youth Program in Ethiopia’s Mai Aini Refugee Camp

The Jesuit Refugee Service youth program at Mai Aini Refugee Camp in northeastern Ethiopia serves young refugees from neighboring Eritrea. The program provides a library, music and arts training, and opportunities to participate in soccer, volleyball and basketball. JRS works with the primary and secondary schools at the camp to coordinate activities, giving youngsters a chance to participate in social activities after school hours.
