Mission of Refugee Protection International
Refugee Protection International’s (RPI) mission is to partner with local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and duty bearers to strengthen protection and self-reliance among urban refugees and internally displaced persons near conflict zones through interventions including, but not limited to, innovative housing solutions, civil and residency documentation, and emergency protection assistance.
Refugee Protection International, with the assistance of refugee-led partners, focuses on inclusive, quality education and birth registration documentation for refugee girls. This project will assist Syrian refugee women and their vulnerable out-of-school refugee girls with birth registration documentation so they can access school and other services. In addition, these girls will be provided with free, regulated non-formal primary education taught by refugee women. Families will be encouraged to enroll girls with disabilities in these schools.
Why We Love This Project
Presently Lebanon hosts 1.5 million Syrian refugees who are facing protracted displacement and statelessness. By helping women and girls with documentation, birth registration, schooling, and access to services, these populations will have more stability in their lives and an opportunity to work towards a better future.
