Urban Refugees is an international NGO, with branches in Paris and New York City, a growing network of over 80 organisations from over 40 countries around the world, and a series of projects supported by a dedicated global staff. Their vision is that no one can see the path beyond a crisis better than those at the heart of it. So they work directly with refugee leaders to enhance their capacity to serve their communities and achieve long-term sustainability.
The pilot project for the URBAN REFUGEES Incubator, the centerpiece of their work with refugee communities, was launched and completed in 2017, followed by two additional collaborations with refugee communities in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
