Nathan Englander and Zadie Smith in Conversation to Benefit Matawi and the Dadaab Young Women’s Scholarship Initiative
From an interview announcing the event with AM New York.
There are 300,000 people in the Dadaab refugee camps, and out of those 300,000 people, maybe two-dozen young women graduate high school a year. Only a couple of those students get to go to college. That Matawi wants to make sure every one of those girls gets to continue her education is really moving to me.
