Most refugees do not want to depend upon aid and are eager to support themselves. Our Urban Refugee Protection Program in Nairobi first stabilizes refugees and then helps them to establish small businesses in order to generate income.

Other Lifetime Accomplishments:

  • Created effective, holistic model for stabilizing urban refugees and supporting them to achieve self-reliance

  • Worked with an NGO to adopt our approach in another country (Zambia)

  • Created and provide leadership for the Self-Reliance Initiative and Community of Practice

  • Created unique tool to measure self-reliance among refugee households

Resettlement

We aim to increase the number of refugees with access to resettlement, and to increase equitable access by strengthening capacity in all refugee-hosting countries
