It seeks to transform public perceptions of the African refugees by shedding light on the incredible resilience refugees demonstrate.

The movement takes ownership of shaping the narrative of over 20.2 million Africa’s displaced, and drives individual contributions toward supporting the refugee cause.

“We believe in the African philosophy of Ubuntu: I am because we are. We see the resilience, courage and hope of people forced to flee. Together we can invest in the future of our forcibly displaced brothers and sisters and help restart their lives to building a better, safer Africa together”.
