PETITION THE UNHCR TO CHARTER A NEW COUNTRY FOR REFUGEES

THE REFUGEE CRISIS

 

Currently, there are over 60 million people that have been forcibly displaced from their homes.

CAUSES

 

Conflict, persecution, and other human rights violations uproot people from all walks of life and force them leave their jobs, their schools, their homes, their families, and many times even their own countries.

LOCATIONS

 

Refugees and displaced individuals come from 93 countries across the world. Half are children, and 9 out of 10 settle in developing countries – the least stable and viable place for them to find a solution to their plight.

IMPACT

 

The majority are not only unemployed and live on less than $2 per day, but without citizenship they are often unable to apply for and find legal means of work, attend school, or marry the person they love.

Very few refugees are ever even considered for resettlement.

Despite lofty goals, current treatment is a perpetual cycle of relief for the overwhelming majority displaced people.

CURRENT SOLUTIONS ARE:

TEMPORARY

For the majority of displaced people, short term aid ends up being all they receive day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year, and decade after decade

RELIEF-BASED

Many refugees and IDP’s are able to access shelter, food, clean water, and receive basic medical care, but the long term vision of rebuilding their lives is rarely an option

REACTIVE

The vast majority of money given and solutions put forward to address the problems of refugees and IDP’s are in response to individual conflicts and crises in the world

LIMITED

Stuck in a cycle of perpetual handouts without access to means of advancement, only a tiny fraction of affected refugees ever find a permanent home

Six decades after its establishment, the plight of the world’s uprooted people still shows no sign of abating.

There Are NOW MORE DISPLACED PEOPLE THAN ANY TIME SINCE WWII.

BUT WHAT IF

THERE WAS A

SOLUTION

THAT

WAS

PROACTIVE

Instead of reacting to the problem once a crisis occurs, what if there was a way to anticipate the magnitude and inevitability of displaced peoples and have a solution waiting for them?

WE BELIEVE THAT SOLUTION EXISTS ....

SUSTAINABLE

What if all displaced people were not only given the emergency relief they desperately need, but were quickly moved into the long term rebuilding process?

PERMANENT

What if there was a solution that did not involve tents, capsizing boats, and illegal immigration, but instead created permanence for the future from the outset?

UNIVERSAL

What if there was a solution that was available to every single refugee, IDP, and asylum seeker - regardless of age, location, and circumstance?

A PLACE WITH OPPORTUNITIES

NOT A PLACE WHERE THEY ARE TEMPORARY GUESTS

WHAT IF THERE WAS A PLACE

THAT ANY REFUGEE COULD CALL HOME

BUT WHERE THEY BECOME MEMBERS OF A PERMANENT COMMUNITY

WHERE THERE CHILDREN CAN GROW AND THRIVE
