Refugee Support

Each year, less than one percent of the world's refugees are resettled to a country like the United States. The vast majority of people who have fled their countries live in cities or camps in neighboring countries.

We work with refugees in their new homes to help them build brighter futures. Adults who may not have been able to finish their education are learning to read. Farmers are cultivating community gardens, growing produce to feed their families and sell. Entrepreneurs are drawing up plans for small businesses and accessing the capital they need to get started.

Some of this work takes place in refugee camps, such as Nyarugusu in Tanzania or Kakuma in Kenya. Other program participants are in cities like Johannesburg or Dar es Salaam.
