We’re dedicated to providing long term development and emergency assistance to migrants and refugees, focusing on young people and the most vulnerable in society.

We empower people to access education and exercise their right to independent and dignified economic, social and cultural development.

Our projects offer protection and mentoring and are delivered in collaboration with local partners and the people who benefit from them.

We believe deeply in each individual’s right to fulfil their potential and work tirelessly to support their return to society as equals.
