REFUGEE = CHANGEMAKER
Beyond Refuge enables refugees in becoming self-reliant and in leading social change for their own community.
“Thanks to Beyond Refuge, now I am out of the box.”Dez Bin, Congolese, forced migrant and youth leader
Beyond Refuge focuses on local ownership of solutions in order for these to be applied in the most effective, scalable and sustainable manner.
We work in collaboration with newcomers because their contextual knowledge, resilience and creativity is invaluable to helping their communities.
Instead of one-size fits all, the approach is highly personalised: mentors and participants co-construct a personal, structured and sequenced journey to self-reliance. Taking into account the individual’s needs,
Personal experiences change mind-sets. Beyond Refuge aims to increase the number of direct interactions and positive joint experiences between forced migrants and the host country.
Founder & Director
Thanks for coming this far and checking out what Beyond Refuge has to offer. I hope you found something that sparked your interested and passion and would love to hear from you and about your ideas on assisting forced migrants.
We are looking for like-minded individuals and organisations from all backgrounds to help make life more dignified and successful for forced migrants.
The recent surge in conflicts and the forced migration they have caused needs solutions now, but it is not a new issue. Beyond Refuge divides its attention equally between those forced migrant communities in new emergency scenarios and those in long-term, protracted situations.
We believe that the heart of social change pulses right within the community. Also, we believe that the word “refugee” is more than anything a label that camouflages a simple fact: before us stand resilient, creative, passionate and loving people who are themselves present and future change makers. If your thinking and feelings towards the forced migration crisis come from the same spot, we would love to meet you and learn from and with you.
Ping us a message here: or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org,
We look forward to hearing from you,
Fred and the Beyond Refuge team
