Advocacy has become a critical part of our work as we try to promote refugee leadership and locally-led initiatives to our donors, and more broadly in the sector. We believe that increased refugee representation and participation in decision-making and programme design will strengthen humanitarian and crisis response. We are advocating for increased direct funding, improved coordination and capacity strengthening.

Our work with our refugee partners proves that this is the most effective, efficient and sustainable way to work. We believe more needs to be done to strengthen refugee-led organisations and networks that enable refugee organisations to have the power to lead change in their communities.
