Refugee Education Initiative

targets capable, highly motivated students with a refugee background, who are pursuing higher education and employment. Through this initiative, refugees are provided money for their education, enrollment counseling, tutors, and opportunities for social integration. Most importantly, the initiative hopes to guide students to marketable employment where they can be productive family, professional, and community contributors.
