Refugees and other forcibly displaced people deserve their right to work, to share their talents, and to earn a living. In our work accompanying refugees around the world, we seek to provide opportunities for them to fulfil their own potential and contribute to society. This World Refugee Day, let’s celebrate refugees building the path forward with their own two hands.
Every year on World Refugee Day, statistics continue to show the gravity of the protracted crises and conflicts that cause an increasing magnitude of displaced people. It’s a day when the challenge of global displacement can seem too overwhelming to approach.
But it is also a day where we can celebrate our displaced brothers and sisters. A day when we can recognise their strength, resilience, and talent, and provide them with assurance that they can rebuild their lives. JRS believes that refugees and displaced people deserve this confidence, along with their right to work, to share their talents, and to earn a living. In our work accompanying refugees around the world, we want to provide refugees with opportunities to fulfil their potential and contribute to society.
