Dr. Mariam Masha began by sharing a video of the horrors of the Boko Haram, the people who fled, and the difficulties they face in the refugee camps., focusing on the story of Rabi, one of thousands of children whose future was gloomy because their communities were under attack. Thanks to North East Children's Trust (NECT) building a learning centre, Rabi learned to write and to use a computer.
