THE FACTS

Why should governments welcome refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants?

We want to live in a world where people who are in grave danger have the opportunity to rebuild their lives in safety.

In a globalized world, sharing global responsibility for global issues is the fair thing to do.

Host communities benefit from the tremendous energy and drive to start new lives, which these people bring.

Welcoming people from other countries strengthens host communities by making them more diverse and flexible in our fast-changing world.

Some of the most inspiring and influential people in the arts, science, politics and technology have been refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants. They were allowed to rebuild their lives in a new country and they thrived as members of a new community.

Founders' Story

My Story started 2010 up to 2018,I was working as mentors for young leaders and entrepreneurs flee from their Country In due course of my work, I noticed that our Refugee local communities, had an under addressed problem. Every time I walked around our communities area , we were struck by the high school Refugee youth dropout rates, the unemployment and meager incomes of Refugee youth. This was the life their parents had lived, and if nothing changed, it is the life their children will most likely live. Thousands of youth drop out of the formal school system annually and we could have been one of them.

Our dedication to Refugee youth empowerment is strongly inspired by the immense possibilities that are open to Refugee youth if they receive the right support. What every Refugee youth needs is the support to explore their potential, to create solutions and build the confidence needed to take action. I decided with my Friends to form REFUGEES FOR PROSPERITY to empower under served Refugee youth through a practical experience that builds their entrepreneurship, employability and leadership skills to enable them to thrive in the labour market.
