A New Approach to Supporting Refugees

With more and more refugees displaced for longer periods of time, businesses have a critical role to help them integrate economically into their host communities.

We encourage companies to think beyond traditional philanthropy. We work with businesses to support refugees by engaging them as potential employees, entrepreneurs, and consumers. When companies take this approach, they are not only helping refugees, they also see considerable business benefits.
