REFUGE AND HOPE
Refuge and Hope is a faith-based non-profit organization serving the urban refugee community in Kampala, Uganda.
To help refugees and displaced people rebuild their lives and prepare for the future by equipping them to thrive wherever they are -- whether they remain in Uganda, resettle abroad or return to their countries of origin.
We empower refugees and displaced people by providing educational, professional and personal development programs designed to help them recover from the effects of war, realize self-sufficiency and become catalysts for change in their communities.
"God is our refuge and strength, a helper who is always found in times of trouble"
Psalm 46:1 (CSB)
Refuge and Hope is a center of diversity and unity, where refugees from multiple nationalities, tribes and languages are part of one big family. Our campus is a safe environment where students can heal, find community in one another, make friends and take advantage of counseling and spiritual support programs designed to help them reconcile their pasts so they can rebuild their futures.
REALIZING FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE
We enable refugees to become self-sufficient through our Practical Education Program and skills training and professional development programs. The objective of these programs is to ensure our students are eligible for well-paying jobs or equipped to start businesses of their own. Our ultimate goal is to enable all of our students to realize financial independence and social empowerment.
Through our leadership and personal development programs, we are preparing generations of refugees to be change makers and leaders here in Uganda and back in their countries of origin.
Our youth leadership program, Spiritual Training for Youth in Leadership & Excellence (STYLE), combines Biblical teachings with personal development and leadership training to prepare youth for a lifetime of success and self-sufficiency.
