News We teach here - a series of films 04 October 2022 We Teach Here is a film series that focuses on the lives of teachers working in refugee settings in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Uganda. Some of these teachers are refugees themselves. Others are national teachers who are working with refugee learners. All are members of communities affected by crisis and displacement.

These are their stories: the lives they lead and the challenges and opportunities they encounter along the way.
