Together We Can
give vulnerable migrants another opportunity
Who We Are
REFUGEE WELFARE ASSOCIATION CAMEROON (REWAC)
REWAC is a small indigenous non-governmental organization registered under Cameroon law in March 2009. We are dedicated to actions, activities, projects and programmes that defend the rights of refugees, asylum seekers and internally displaced persons.
What We Do
As concerns activities under advocacy, we train Lawyers on the rights of vulnerable migrants as well as organizing conferences, talk shows, debates and seminars plus Workshops on issues about vulnerable migrants.
Concerning education, the main activity is the vocational training of vulnerable migrants on skills and trades for immediate job acquisition and income generation. We also engage in primary, secondary and higher school support programs for migrant children
Under this program area, we build strategic partnerships with other major stake holders for food distribution to the over 600,000 vulnerable migrant population in Cameroon. The situation of these migrants is dehumanizing, precarious and critical
help us keep refugee girls and women
safe from sexual violence
Did you know that Cameroon now hosts more than 447,000 refugees and asylum seekers and that almost 80 % of them are children and women? Violence against young women is one of the most devastating human rights violations, and it has psychological, sexual, and reproductive health consequences that can affect women for years.
At REWAC, we reaffirm our commitment to provide refugee women (especially nursing mothers and teenage pregnant ladies) with protection and psychosocial support.
