    Dear PoetNation,

    My name is Sarah Dryden-Peterson. I am an assistant professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I am collaborating on a new project aimed at creating support systems so that Somali students in Dadaab refugee camps in Kenya can be more successful in school. We are interested in learning about the kinds of supports that all members of the Somali community draw on to be successful in school.

    Could you please help me circulate the following note and survey to anyone within the Somali community or to any relevant organizations? Thank you so much!

    Are you of Somali origin?
    Have you completed secondary school?
    Are you over the age of 18?
    If so, we’d love to hear from you

    With my colleagues, I am now working to create support systems so that Somali students in Dadaab refugee camps in Kenya can be more successful in school. We are interested in learning about the kinds of supports that members of the Somali community draw on to be successful in school.

    To help with this project, we hope you will take 10-15 minutes to fill out this survey by copying this link to your internet browser http://bit.ly/LAbs1O .
