Our Focus Areas
Over the last 2 years through building relationships with countless frontline NGOs, there are consistent themes that have emerged as areas of collaboration with the private and public sectors.
We work primarily in countries that are receiving and hosting forcibly displaced communities. For example our current and prior work includes but is not limited to: Lebanon, Colombia, Mexico, Central American, and Greece.
Displaced populations and the local communities they find refuge in often have barriers to accessing healthcare that is critical to their physical and emotional well-being.
Our areas of focus are:
Non-medication treatments for post traumatic stress disorder and other mental illnesses.
Provide women and girls care and access to quality healthcare addressing their reproductive health needs
Support prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal care
Screening for breast, ovarian, and cervical cancers
Well care visits
Treatment and management through medicine and lifestyle changes of non-communicable diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, asthma
Reducing the transmission of communicable diseases
One of the most consistent reasons families and children especially flee their homes is to regain access to education. We developed relationships with nonprofit organizations that compliment the formal education sector focused in the following areas:
Non-formal education in camp and community settings
Education Support (Remedial education)
Access to university-level education
Increased inflows of new residents create both opportunities and challenges for communities. We work with organizations that serve new and existing residents to:
Transition from temporary living to affordable housing options
Access to healthcare regardless of status
Drive inclusive, and meaningful entrepreneurial innovation to support both new and existing citizens
Provide pathways to inclusion in the formal economy
Build cross cultural awareness, allowing new and old residents to interact
Shifting the Narrative
Stories matter. Language and rhetoric circulated in the media about refugees affect the way refugees are perceived by the general public, and how policies and decisions are made by governments and civil society organizations. The narrative around the ongoing refugee crisis in the past few years has largely been toxic and created from the top down. We are dedicated to shifting the narrative to one that is fair, accurate, representative, and community-led. We build and consult on cultural projects and community-centered programs that highlight human stories and respecting the agency of refugees as authors of their own narratives.
