Economic Empowerment

Global Refugee Initiative’s Economic Empowerment activities focus on providing long-term solutions to the economic challenges of refugees, Internally Displaced Persons, and their hosts.
The activities are designed in collaboration with communities, are context specific and take into account both immediate and long-term needs of individuals and families, within actions aimed at increasing production capacities and promoting income.

“With our livelihood programs at GRI we try to reduce the economic pressure on both refugee and host communities through a number of approaches such as block farming and skilling programs”
