Challenge

In Eastern Africa there is an increasing number of urban refugees who predominantly originate from the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and Somalia. The cities where they arrive as refugees are not adequately equipped to provide a respectable standard of living to their expanding populations. Refugees face unique challenges in this already challenging environment. We believe that everyone has a right to equal opportunities and protection wherever they live and whatever their b

Solution

We believe that everyone has the right to equal opportunities and protection wherever they live and wherever their background. Globally this right is denied to refugees and we use education to change this. At Xavier Project we use pioneering education as a means to achieve this vision. We work in solidarity with refugees, communities and institutions on a mission to ensure that every individual can live a safe and fulfilling life.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that education allows refugees to build a safer and more fulfilling future for themselves, their families and their communities.
