We are excited to announce that the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) has approved the Refugees as Re-Builders™ Pledge towards the Global Refugee Compact!
RRB™ will work towards training 300 emerging leaders over the next three years; enabling those affected by displacement to rebuild and empower both host and communities of origin.
The RRB™ programme covers the skills, knowledge and practice required to initiate dialogue for social cohesion, create sustainable livelihoods for resilience and apply ethical leadership for just governance. The RRB™ course is designed to strengthen the capability and expertise participants already possess as rebuilders, providing them with the resources and practical tools needed to potentially develop and facilitate workshops within their diaspora communities and countries of origin.
Ethical and values-based principles underpin the course, allowing people of different backgrounds to build trust across the divides of ethnicity, class and religion and develop values-based leadership.

Are you a refugee who wants to help rebuild your home country?
Do you find yourself wanting to make a difference? As a refugee, you are acutely aware of the global challenges faced by your diaspora and home communities. You may have experienced difficulties first hand and feel you know what is needed.
Rather than hoping for top-down solutions, we believe that you can be the rebuilder that your community needs and we aim to help you make an impact. Refugees as Re-Builders™ training is an ILM Assured capacity-building programme which provides innovative, meaningful and relevant learning opportunities for settled refugees. Our training courses have been designed to strengthen the capability and expertise participants already possess as rebuilders, providing them with the resources and practical tools needed to serve their communities and countries of origin.
