DAAD supports Kenya's Garissa University students

In April 2015, 142 students of Kenya's Garissa University have been killed in attacks by the terrorist group al Shabaab. In cooperation with the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, DAAD launched a scholarship programme helping the surviving students to find their way back to normalcy. As Garissa University has been closed after the attacks, the students continue their studies at Moi University in Eldoret, located about 300 kilometres from Nairobi. Up to 300 students in need receive a monthly scholarship, covering their additional tuition fees and living costs for one year. In addition, DAAD has pledged to provide funds for medical and psychological treatment in case of need.
