Displaced people are not just refugees; they are employees and employers, consumers and suppliers, and business and political leaders.

In our latest publication with the Amahoro Coalition we explore how the private sector can empower refugee communities, developing commercially-viable programs in refugee settings that:

  1. Strengthen access to affordable education
  2. Provide capital to scale refugee-inclusive businesses
  3. Support market access for refugee-owned enterprises

These solutions not only empower refugee communities, but they also create a pool of talent, a thriving market place and enhance partnership opportunities within the private sector.
