BROWNKEY started as a camp wide campaign against FGM. It was founded by Nadiifo Abdi with just a Facebook Page and a blog in March, 2016 and later expanded to encompass other aspects of refugee life. The main issue areas that the Brownkey addresses are Children's health, Culture, Education, energy, Environment and sustainable development. BROWNKEY is the first nonprofit organization that was founded inside the camps by refugee individuals who thought they could change their society.
