Everyone should be able to live without fear. We should all have a safe place to call home, a way to earn a living, food to eat and water to drink.

In many communities in Africa, like in many other places in the world, these goals can be hard to reach. Conflict and disasters drive people from their homes. Harsh climates can destroy crops and make it hard to get water.

CWS operates Resettlement Support Center Africa, based in Kenya. The RSC team guides all U.S.-bound refugees from sub-Saharan Africa through the resettlement process. We help them prepare for their new lives in the United States.

Other CWS programs focus on helping farmers improve their harvests. Connecting communities to clean water. Equipping families to rebuild and replant after a disaster. Supporting entrepreneurs from marginalized communities as they start businesses. Building a world where everyone can reach their potential.
