After fleeing war-torn South Sudan as a child, Mary Maker found security and hope in the school at Kenya’s Kakuma Refugee Camp. Now a teacher of young refugees herself, she sees education as an essential tool for rebuilding lives — and empowering a generation of girls who are too often denied entrance into the classroom. “For the child of war, an education can turn their tears of loss into a passion for peace,” Maker says.

This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxKakumaCamp, an independent event. TED’s editors chose to feature it for you.
