We support refugees who are changing lives in their communities.

Our bold idea

We believe in sustainable solutions to break the circle of perpetual aid. Our workputs refugees at the center of these solutions, and provides the tools for refugees themselves to positively transform their communities. Although the communities we partner with face overwhelming obstacles, their members have the same energy, hope, and tenacity as anyone else.

How we work

HEALTH

Most refugees lack access to even basic healthcare. Their only chance of finding care is through alternative medical solutions such as doctors or nurses within their community or free clinics. These programs save lives. We help refugee communities build partnerships with these service providers.

EDUCATION

In many countries, refugee youth are denied access to education. In order to educate their young people, refugee communities create and operate their own schools. We support and strengthen these initiatives so refugee children can have access to quality education and build a foundation for their future.

LIVELIHOODS

In environments of extreme scarcity, refugees struggle to provide for themselves and their families. In their host country, they must learn new skills to find work. We help refugees build their own skills training and connect to the job market so they can make ends meet and contribute to the local economy.

SAFETY

In many countries, refugees live in constant fear of being arrested or detained, simply because of their refugee status—which can have devastating effects on families. We reinforce the informal safety strategies refugee communities put in place to prevent detention, and address it when it occurs.
