The Problem

More people are moving than ever before. Many people are moving because they are forced to. When arriving in a new community or country people who have been forced to flee their home face huge challenges in accessing housing, healthcare, education and employment. There are few initiatives successfully providing long-term solutions in refugee hosting communities. This create a cycle of dependency on emergency response solutions such as food and clothing donations. 

The Solution

Your support enables us to increase access to education, employment, housing and healthcare in refugee-hosting communities. Our projects support both newly-arrived refugees and the local community. Refugee camps place a limit on people's human rights and strip away people's ability to make their own choices about their lives. We look to solutions that restore independence and dignity. The projects we support and run show there is another way to support both refugees and the whole community. 


IDENTIFICATION AND ASSESSMENT Developing projects that will deliver enduring, positive changes and form authentic connections between refugee and host communities.  We work with local partners and organisations to assess the needs, understand local aspirations and evaluate the suitability of RefuAid's approach to providing support.

In collaboration with actors, municipality and the communities a project design is developed. We then apply to boards, networks and grants for funding to implement the project.

IMPLEMENTATION One of the critical components to successful implementation is a close working relationship with partners on the ground.  At all stages of a project RefuAid nurture and foster relationships between host and refugee communities. For example, where possible all staff and volunteers are sourced locally. Local partners are involved in decision-making i.e with the needs of refugees, type of project and a location suitable for all parties. Community members play a huge role in implementation, from volunteering, supplying and distribution or resources and project management.

MONITORING Monitoring, both formal and informal is ongoing. It provides useful information to local participants, partners and external actors.  Listening to feedback, is pivotal for relevant and responsive interventions.  It is also essential to professionally monitor the impact on refugees once settled and have benefitted from RefuAid projects in communities of transit.
