The forced journey of Khadija, a refugee in Chad
Written by Badre Bahaji

Listening to the story of Khadija, 15, and her many travels, I could imagine the dangerous road that these migrant children have taken. In 5 years, "Khadi" as her friends call her, has lived in five different places because of conflict or drought.

Khadija Kaku lives in the Daresalam refugee camp in Chad’s Lac Region. "My father is a farmer, he left us to go to work a plot of land leased near the shores of the Lake. He doesn’t want us to live on humanitarian aid alone," she says, proudly.

Kaku Khadija was born in Ariboye, a remote village in north-eastern Nigeria with no school and no clean drinking water. Her parents rented a small piece of land to work, but it wasn’t enough. "In 2010, there was another drought. We couldn’t harvest enough to live on for the rest of the year. We had to leave our home to travel to the village of Meltri on the shores of Lake Chad. Our uncle welcomed us there," she continues.

The life of a teenager

Khadija’s life in Meltri looks like the life of the kind of teenager I know. "My uncle had a television, a computer and a small shop where he charged people’s phones. This is where I developed a passion for new technologies. We watched Bollywood shows and music videos from all over Africa. Then we’d go out with friends and try to imitate the movies or the lyrics for fun,” she says with an embarrassed smile.

It was also in Meltri where Khadija discovered school, quickly advancing to grade 5. Reality would soon catch up to her however. "One morning when we entered the classroom, we found a letter slipped under the door of the school at night, written in Hausa by Boko Haram. The letter ordered parents to send their children home, and teachers to leave the area." The tone of her voice changed immediately as she recounted the inci

It is her first vaccination, having been born under Boko Haram captivity. UNICEF and partners have started an emergency polio immunization campaign in Borno State, as a result of two wild poliovirus cases recently found among children in the conflict-affected area. Nigeria – and the continent – had its last confirmed polio case two years ago and was within a year of being certified polio-free.
