What We Do
We are focused on identifying and helping individuals, families and communities that are in extreme danger and have no where to turn. We work to fill the critical and unmet needs of people affected by war and conflict who have fallen through the net of humanitarian assistance, in particular women, children and urban refugees.

Where We Work
RefugePoint deploys protection officers throughout Africa to identify the most vulnerable refugees and provide them a path to safety. Since our founding in 2005, we have worked in more than 20 different locations across Africa with people fleeing persecution in the Congo, Somalia, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Burundi and other war-torn areas.
