Women Refugee Route (WRR)’s mission is to start a positive cycle in which refugee women are considered not as simple recipients of services and support, but as actors of change for themselves and their communities.

Taking into account their mobility, WRR trains refugee women on advocacy and empowerment, and provide them with tools they can use anywhere to find employment and integrate in their host countries.
As an NGO without regular streams of income, we rely on external support to continue the development of our app and carry out refugee and volunteer trainings in the future. It is possible to become engaged through uncommitted donations but also by funding concrete actions, trainings or equipment. We very much appreciate your donations if you want to support our work financially.
