What happens when a young refugee is denied access to education? He co-founds a school so he and his community can continue to learn. Abdullah Sarwari's parents are from Afghanistan but he was born in Pakistan and raised in Iran. Four and a half years ago, Abdullah and his family came to Indonesia to seek safety as refugees. Upon arriving in Indonesia, the then 16-year-old Abdullah realized as refugees, they were not allowed to work or study in Indonesia, meaning he could not complete his studies. In response to this, he and four friends co-founded an informal refugee school—the Refugee Learning Center. Over the last four years, the school has provided free education to over 300 refugee children, men, and women. Recently, he was selected out of 300 other candidates to work with UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) in Indonesia which was a dream come true for Abdullah. He and his family also signed their resettlement papers and now call Canada home. Abdullah Sarwari's parents are from Afghanistan but he was born in Pakistan and raised in Iran.
