Rahma is one of those individuals who can truly light up a room. He's charismatic, energetic, articulate, and has a great sense of humor. As an 18-year-old Darfuri refugee, Rahma has spent half of his young life in Djabal refugee camp in eastern Chad. The Darfur Dream Team Sister Schools Program has followed Rahma's life and education in Djabal since 2009. We've learned about his family and friends, the challenges of being a refugee, and his aspirations for both his own future and the future of Darfur. Rahma wants to return to Darfur to continue his education and earn a university degree; he talks about becoming a politician or a journalist there.
The conflict in Darfur began 10 years ago.
