Long-term projects aimed at empowering displaced
people for sustainable change
There are more displaced people today than ever before. There are currently 68.5 million displaced people around the world. In addition, the duration of displacement is increasing. Now, on average, a displaced person will remain displaced for 26 years.
85% of displaced people are being hosted by developing countries. Host countries and humanitarian aid agencies are struggling to keep up with the influx of displaced people around the globe. The traditional model of providing solely humanitarian-based assistance is not sustainable and forces displaced people into long-term dependency on aid organizations who can no longer afford to meet their needs.
There must be a better way. Development projects are intended to resolve the insufficiency of long-term humanitarian aid. Not only do development projects eliminate dependence on on-going humanitarian assistance, they also empower displaced people to rebuild their lives in meaningful ways and be the agents of their own future.
Development projects are essential to our vision of empowering displaced people to realize a brighter future for themselves, their families, and their communities. As a result, development projects will be the focus of our work.
Our upcoming development projects will be announced soon.
