Abdi is an Ethiopian refugee living in Egypt. After two years of adjusting to Egypt and working on his language skills, Abdi resumed his basic education at the age of 18 in a private school established by refugees, one of 70 such private schools in Cairo. According to the UNHCR, less than 50% of child refugees around the world have access to education.
