Conflict, persecution, and other human rights violations uproot people from all walks of life and force them leave their jobs, their schools, their homes, their families, and many times even their own countries.
Refugees and displaced individuals come from 93 countries across the world. Half are children, and 9 out of 10 settle in developing countries – the least stable and viable place for them to find a solution to their plight.
The majority are not only unemployed and live on less than $2 per day, but without citizenship they are often unable to apply for and find legal means of work, attend school, or marry the person they love.
Very few refugees are ever even considered for resettlement.
Despite lofty goals, current treatment is a perpetual cycle of relief for the overwhelming majority displaced people.
CURRENT SOLUTIONS ARE:
THE REFUGEE CRISIS
Currently, there are over 59.5 million people that have been forcibly displaced from their homes.
Six decades after its establishment, the plight of the world’s uprooted people still shows no sign of abating.
The United Nations High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR)
There Are NOW MORE DISPLACED PEOPLE THAN ANY TIME SINCE WWII.
BUT WHAT IF
THERE WAS A
WE BELIEVE THAT SOLUTION EXISTS ....
A PLACE WITH OPPORTUNITIES
NOT A PLACE WHERE THEY ARE TEMPORARY GUESTS
WHAT IF THERE WAS A PLACE
THAT ANY REFUGEE COULD CALL HOME
BUT WHERE THEY BECOME MEMBERS OF A PERMANENT COMMUNITY
WHERE THERE CHILDREN CAN GROW AND THRIVE
