Dear DAFI students and graduates and all friends of the DAFI Scholarship Programme,
Did you know that DAFI is already 20 years old?
This year we celebrate the 20th anniversary of DAFI and we are proud and happy to do this with all of you and all around the world. In Geneva Headquarters for example there was an Exhibition on tertiary education and the DAFI Programme in the Palais des Nations, attended by the UN High Commissioner for refugees and the German Ambassador to the United Nations Office in Geneva!!
Now it is as well time to share YOUR success stories! Please find here over the next couple of weeks new and challenging stories from DAFI graduates all around the world and get inspired by all your achievements and your contributions to your society, where ever you are...
Share the spirit and keep in touch,
Your UNHCR Education Unit in Geneva HQ
Dear former and current DAFI scholars,
This year the DAFI scholarship programme celebrates its 20th anniversary and thereby we wish to look back to more than 6,000 students that have benefited from a tertiary education support so far. Taking advantage of this special occasion the DAFI Team in UNHCR Headquarters intends to create an official Facebook album. The idea is to compile stories from you, former or current DAFI students, in order to highlight the impact that DAFI had on your lives. Relying on your dynamism, a global DAFI network can be created which will facilitate correspondence and exchange amongst DAFI students worldwide.
To realize this idea we depend on your support! Please send the following information to HQEDUC @unhcr.org:
- A recent portrait photo;
- Your name, current occupation (including field of study or job), age, country of origin, country of study, country of current residence, period when you benefited from DAFI scholarship;
- A paragraph responding to the question how DAFI impacted your life.
Many thanks for your support in advance!
We are counting on you!
Your DAFI Team in UNHCR Headquarters Geneva
