Refugee empowerment
Refugees struggle to integrate after relocation

By the end of 2019, 79.5 million individuals were forcibly displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict, violence or human rights violations. That was an increase of 8.7 million people over the previous year, and the world's forcibly displaced population remained at a record high.

Once refugees and asylum seekers are resettled, barriers prevent access to the workforce and community integration. Refugees children are 5 times more likely to be out of school. Seventy-six (76) percent of refugee adolescents were not in secondary school. Only 3% of refugees enroll in college or university.  Across the world, enrollment in college or university stands at 37%.

 
Our Solution:
