African Rights Action aims to promote social inclusion and integration of Rwandan refugees and asylum seekers and other African communities from becoming socially excluded, relieving the needs of those people who are socially excluded and assisting them to integrate into society of host countries, in particular by:
Providing a networking group that encourages and enables them to participate more effectively with the wider community of host countries
Implementing community projects in relation to improving refugees’ education, economic self-reliance and human rights
Promoting the development opportunities that contribute to advancing Rwandan Refugees’ human, cultural, social and economic development.

Undertake need assessment to inform and add value to our work
