Where We Work

In East Africa, our comprehensive program focuses on Gender-Equality Education and GBV Prevention in the refugee settlements of Bidi-Bidi, Rwamwanja, and Nakivale. This initiative is committed to addressing and transforming the difficulties faced by tens of thousands of young girls, women, and children who discontinue their education at the primary level. In the United States and Europe, our mental health support program is managed by licensed clinicians. This program utilises art therapy interventions to assist participants in coping with anxiety and depressive disorders, alleviating distress, and promoting enhanced emotional and psychological well-being.

Bidi-Bidi Refugee Settlement, Uganda

Bidi-Bidi Refugee Settlement is one of the largest refugee camps in the world, located on the South Sudanese border. The population is more than 270,000 and growing, of which 85% are women and children.

The people living in this settlement have fled their country of origin due to the poverty, violence and atrocities of civil war. 

Rwamwanja Refugee Settlement, Uganda

Situated along the Congolese (DRC) border, the Rwamwanja Refugee Settlement encompasses a burgeoning population surpassing 100,000.

The populations living in this settlement have fled their country of origin due to the dire circumstances of impoverishment, violence, and the grievous horrors stemming from over a decade of turmoil. Notably, this includes the distressing chapters of the M23 rebellion and the overarching Kivu conflict.

Nakivale Refugee Settlement, Uganda

Is positioned in close proximity to the Tanzanian border, with a population exceeding 150,000, of which almost 75% are women, youth and/or children, and this number continues to rise.

The populations living in this settlement originate from a diverse array of countries including the Democratic Republic of Congo, Burundi, Somalia, Rwanda, Ethiopia, and Eritrea. It is one of the oldest refugee camps in Africa.

Our project in the refugee settlements of Bidi-Bidi, Rwamwanja, and Nakivale is funded by the Leopold Bachmann Foundation & Roma Tre University.
