On behalf of the Norwegian Refugee Council's (NRC) staff and the people we serve, we thank you for helping those who are forced to flee!

The donations you give to NRC really do change lives and contribute to real and lasting change for millions of people forced to flee their homes. We make sure that your donations go to those who need it the most. 

Here are some examples of how NRC is helping those who are displaced:

NRC have worked with hundreds of thousands of displaced young people since 2003. Our education programmes for young people are adapted to different ages and contexts. In some places, where young people have missed out on basic education due to war and displacement, we provide catch-up classes in subjects such as literacy and numeracy and support them to re-enter the formal education systems.

In others, where youth struggle to find work, we focus on vocational subjects that help them access and thrive in the labour market. For example, when there has been a war, there can be a gap in the construction market. We train young people to fill this gap so that they can rebuild their countries brick-by-brick.

All of our programmes for youth have a life skills component, such as communication, teamwork, conflict resolution and reproductive health. We continue to invest young people’s well-being and encourage the action they take to support their communities.

In places where there are no jobs, we support young people in setting up their own businesses. We provide the training, the skills and the tools. Last year, we provided 1,154,516 displaced children and youth with education or vocational training.

With your support, we can help even more people!
