STORYLINE
Sudanese scholar, Raba Hakim, has finally fulfilled her lifelong dream of going to university, thanks to a MasterCard Foundation scholarship.

22-year-old Raba Hakim grew up in the Tongo refugee camp in Ethiopia and always dreamed of going to university. Thanks to a scholarship from the MasterCard Foundation, she’s attending university in Kenya. She arrived in Nairobi, Kenya’s capital in September 2021 to study for a bachelor’s degree in psychology at the United States International University – Africa. The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program is open to refugees in various countries across the world, including Ethiopia, where young refugee women like Raba and students from the local community who are “self-motivated and potential change makers with a strong commitment to improve their community” can apply. According to UNHCR’s annual education report, only 5 percent of refugees have access to higher education globally and the figure is even lower for refugee girls. UNHCR aims to increase this figure to at least 15 per cent by the year 2030.
