Summary
There are an estimated 170,000 Somalis living in the Dabaab refugee camp in northeast Kenya. Life in the camp is tough but one new – and surprising – initiative is starting to make quite an impact. Sport in the camp is important. It keeps the youngsters healthy and occupied amid the monotony. But very few girls were involved, partly because the mainly Muslim refugees were opposed to girls playing games. But that is changing now that special sports clothing has been designed for the girls which meets religious requirements. They wear an hijab to cover their hair and a long-sleeved tunic and loose ankle-length trousers. This video reports on life in the camp and how many of the girls have now taken to volleyball, netball and handball. This video is part of a documentary series produced for the BBC
