Join RefuSHE in Standing #WithRefugees for World Refugee Day 2018!

Stand #WithRefugee and RefuSHE for World Refugee Day

June 20th is World Refugee Day. A special day when people all over the world honor the courage, strength, and determination of women, men, and children who are forced to flee their homeland under threat of persecution, conflict, and violence. 

Join RefuSHE in showing that you stand #WithRefugees this World Refugee Day!  Post on social media and share our work, or take it step farther by starting a fundraiser on Facebook. 

All of your efforts will contribute to our goal of raising $25,000 to fully fund 10 young women to participate in RefuSHE's Girls' Empowerment Project for one year. They will attend classes and vocational training, receive counseling, medical and legal aid, psychosocial support, and much more. A generous RefuSHE supporter has pledged to match, dollar for dollar, all gifts made until June 20th, up to $25,000! All donations can go twice as far to support the young women and girls we serve!
