The project aims to explore the educational experiences and needs of Horn of Africa (Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia and Sudan) children in Camden schools. The project consists of 3 stages:

  • Analysis of quantitative examination results (by Camden statistics unit)
  • Fieldwork in 6 primary and secondary schools to gather qualitative data;
