IMPORTANCE OF REFUGEE-LED ORGANIZATIONS
Updated: Oct 25, 2020
"Refugees bring a wealth of skills and experience with them when they flee to new countries
and communities. These skills need to be identified and tapped to better engage refugees in
their own solutions. Refugee communities, for example, often set up their own self-help
groups in their countries of asylum. These groups know their communities best and are
often those who respond first to their communities’ needs and priorities."
