REWAC provides comprehensive services to uphold safety, security and dignity for refugees, asylum seekers, IDPs, stateless persons and vulnerable migrants. Our initiatives include:
- Operating legal clinics in urban centers and remote areas, offering free counsel, assistance acquiring documentation, support with refugee status determination and asylum applications, third country resettlement pursuit, and reintegration needs.
- Managing a nationwide network of safe shelters and spaces tailored to the needs of at-risk women, girls, LGBTQ+ individuals who have endured sexual violence, trafficking, exploitation, forced/child marriage, FGM and other harms. Shelters provide psychosocial support, skills training, and reintegration prep.
- Training community paralegals and para-social workers to provide basic legal advice, counseling, mediation and follow-up support around protection issues within their communities. This bridges access gaps.
- Strengthening identification and referral mechanisms across civil society to promptly link survivors of trafficking and abuse to health, psychosocial, safety and legal services. We track cases to ensure holistic care.
- Operating 24/7 multilingual emergency hotlines providing information, counseling, and referrals for migrants requiring urgent help with safety, health, food, shelter or documentation challenges.
- Undertaking family tracing and assessments of suitable care arrangements for unaccompanied migrant children before family reunification. Our standby foster parents provide interim care.
- Facilitating community dialogues engaging host communities on social integration and support for displaced groups. This counters xenophobia and builds social cohesion.
