Saida Aden Said: I still have this horrific image in my mind.
赛达·赛义德 (Saida Said)： 我脑海中仍有这可怕的画面。
I could see people falling down,
I was so terrified.
Really, I was crying a lot.
Someone who knew my father and my mom grabbed my hand, and he said,
"Let's go! Let's go! Let's go!"
And I was like, "Where's my mom? My mom? My mom?"
Noria Dambrine Dusabireme: During nights we would hear shots,
诺里亚·杜萨比梅尔 (Noria Dusabireme): 晚上我们会听到射击声，
we would hear guns.
Elections were supposed to happen.
We had young people going in the street,
they were having strikes.
And most of the young people died.
SAS: We boarded a vehicle.
It was overloaded.
People were running for their lives.
That is how I fled from Somalia.
My mom missed me.
Nobody told her where I went.
NDD: The fact that we did not go to school,
we couldn't go to the market, we were just stuck home
made me realize that if I got an option to go for something better,
I could just go for it and have a better future.
Ignazio Matteini: Globally, displaced people in the world
伊格纳西奥·马特尼 (Ignazio Matteini): 全球流离失所的人数
have been increasing.
Now there are almost 60 million people displaced in the world.
现在世界上有将近 6 千万的人流离失所。
And unfortunately, it doesn't stop.
Chrystina Russell: I think the humanitarian community
克里斯蒂娜·罗素 (Chrystina Russell): 我觉得人道主义组织
is starting to realize from research and reality
that we're talking about a much more permanent problem.
Baylie Damtie Yeshita: These students, they need a tertiary education,
贝利·耶希塔 (Baylie Yeshita): 这些学生需要高等教育，
a degree that they can use.
If the students are living now in Rwanda,
if they get relocated, still they can continue their study.
Still, their degree is useful, wherever they are.
CR: Our audacious project was to really test
Southern New Hampshire University's Global Education Movement's
南新罕布什尔大学的 全球教育运动 (Global Education Movement)
ability to scale,
to bring bachelor's degrees and pathways to employment
to refugees and those who would otherwise not have access to higher education.
SAS: It was almost impossible, as a refugee person,
to further my education and to make my career.
My name is Saida Aden Said,
and I am from Somalia.
I was nine years old when I came to Kakuma,
我 9 岁时来到 卡库马难民营 (Kakuma)，
and I started going to school at 17.
Now I am doing my bachelor degree
NDD: My name is Noria Dambrine Dusabireme.
I'm doing my bachelor of arts in communications
with a concentration in business.
CR: We are serving students across five different countries:
Lebanon, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda and South Africa.
Really proud to have 800 AA grads to over 400 bachelor's graduates
我们很自豪能拥有 800 名文科副学士 和 400 多名本科毕业生，
and nearly 1,000 students enrolled right now.
以及目前将近 1000 位在读学生。
So, the magic of this is that we're addressing refugee lives as they exist.
There are no classes.
There are no lectures.
There are no due dates.
There are no final exams.
This degree is competency-based and not time-bound.
You choose when you start your project.
You choose how you're going to approach it.
NDD: When you open the platform, that's where you can see the goals.
Under each goal, we can find projects.
When you open a project, you get the competencies
that you have to master,
and overview of the project.
CR: The secret sauce of SNHU
is combining that competency-based online learning
with the in-person learning that we do with partners
to provide all the wraparound supports.
That includes academic coaching.
It means psychosocial support,
and it's also that back-end employment support
that's really resulting in the 95 percent graduation,
而这切实地促成了 95% 的毕业率，
the 88 percent employment.
NDD: I'm a social media management intern.
It's related to the communications degree I'm doing.
I've learned so many things out of the project and in the real world.
CR: The structured internship is really an opportunity
for students to practice their skills,
for us to create connections between that internship
and a later job opportunity.
This is a model that really stops putting time
and university policies and procedures at the center
and instead puts the student at the center.
IM: The SNHU model is a big way to shake the tree.
It's a huge shake to the traditional way of having tertiary education here.
BDY: It can transform the lives of students
from these vulnerable and refugee communities.
NDD: If I get the degree,
I can just come back and work everywhere that I want.
I can go for a masters confidently in English,
which is something that I would not have dreamt of before.
And I have the confidence and the skills required
to actually go out and just tackle the workplace
without having to fear that I can't make it.
SAS: I always wanted to work with the community.
I want to establish a nonprofit.
We advocate for women's education.
I want to be someone who is, like, an ambassador
and encourage them to learn
and tell them it is never too late.
