The humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan is driving Afghans to seek safety outside of their country. But with more than 20 million refugees already registered globally with the UN Refugee Agency — and only a small fraction of resettlement needs being met each year — new pathways to protect and resettle Afghans and millions of other refugees are urgently needed.
Private and community sponsorship of refugees initiatives, such as those in Canada and elsewhere, have been successful in finding new homes for refugees while enabling host communities to be part of the solution. But they need to be rapidly expanded around the world.
Join us Wednesday, September 8 for this important and timely discussion to learn about the urgent need from Afghan women refugees, how these programs work and opportunities to ramp up sponsorship in the United States and elsewhere.
