This program aims to incubate promising refugee-led groups so that they become self-sustaining organizations that support their communities through innovative programs, engage actively in the design of programs affecting their own lives and can actively implement programs that will most directly benefit their communities.
The incubation program includes technical assistance, training and mentorship and lasts 3 months. Each program is tailored according to the organisation’s specific needs. Overall, the program comprises 3 components:
We work with refugee organizations to strengthen management and improve existing programs, with focus on:
We support refugee organizations in raising a first pool of money for a particular project through a crowd funding campaign on a Kick-starter. We also provide training on fund-raising and grant writing so that other campaigns and projects can be implemented in the future.
We will open our first incubation program next year.
We are currently looking refugee led organisations interested in our program for a first pilot starting early 2016. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you be interested or if you know of refugee organisations who may be!
