Transforming Lives: Empowering Refugee and Local Youth for a Dignified Future



We believe that access to digital skills and economic opportunities are a fundamental human right. SIR is a prominent Refugee-led organization with a vision of a world where refugees, despite the challenges they face, have the opportunity to lead fulfilling lives, contribute to their communities, and reach their full potential.





Education:
Globally, only 23% of refugee youth have access to secondary education and technical and vocational education and training (TVET).
Livelihoods
80% of refugees live in poverty, and only 20% have access to formal employment.
Advocacy & Capacity Strengthening
Refugee-led organizations (RLOs) are uniquely positioned to understand the needs of their communities and to develop effective solutions. However, they are often excluded from decision-making processes within the humanitarian sector.
Climate Resilience
Refugees are disproportionately affected by climate change, and they often lack the skills and resources to adapt to new challenges.
Digital solutions & Innovation
Refugees often lack access to information and opportunities, which limits their ability to learn, work, and connect with others.
