Founder’s story

My story started in 2010 and continued until 2018 when I was working as a mentor for young leaders and entrepreneurs who were fleeing their country. In the course of my work, I noticed an under-addressed problem within our local refugee communities. Whenever I walked around our community area, I noticed majority of the refugee youth could not access basic human rights like education, medical care, moving from one place to another, as well as their struggles with unemployment and low incomes and banking services. This was the life their parents had lived, and without change, it was likely to be the life their children would also lead. Thousands of youths dropped out of the formal school system annually, a path that we could easily have found ourselves on.

 
Our dedication to empowering refugee youth is strongly inspired by the vast possibilities that lie ahead for them with the right support. What every refugee youth needs is the encouragement to explore their potential, create solutions, and develop the confidence necessary to take action. In the year 2018, I made the decision to establish “Refugees for Prosperity,” aimed at empowering underserved refugee youth through practical experiences that enhance their entrepreneurship, employability, and leadership skills, thus enabling them to thrive in the job market.
