Increase income and livelihoods opportunities
For refugee communities to be able to integrate fully into their host communities it is essential that they are able to be self-reliant and find ways of sustaining themselves. There are often barriers to them accessing income and livelihoods opportunities in East Africa. We work with these communities to develop skills and find opportunities that enable them to utilise their talents and resources. This enables them to live more fulfilled lives and build a better future for themselves and their wider communities.
