Our efforts center around two main goals: supporting refugees to acquire basic needs for a healthy life and empowering their future through removing barriers to education.
Living in a refugee camp requires overcoming many challenges to daily life including food insecurity, limited access to medical care, scarcity and rationing of water for drinking and cleaning, and no access to feminine hygiene products.
One of our goals at Refugee Strong is to alleviate the burden of some of these concerns so that communities can focus on their futures and students can focus their energy on furthering their education.
EDUCATION & OUTREACH
We strongly believe that education is the most powerful tool to foster a brighter and more hopeful future. The daily pressures on individuals and families within a refugee camp can often cause many to give up their studies in an effort to support their families.
Refugee Strong works hard to empower as many students as possible to continue their education. We want to ensure students have the resources required to learn to their fullest potential and can see a future for themselves where their knowledge is power.
