Our goal is to empower refugees to move from isolation to connection, uncertainty to confidence, misunderstanding to harmony and most importantly, from misjudgement to respect. We work in collaboration with a variety of stakeholders and humanitarian agencies to achieve this goal.

Refugee Interpreters Association on Taking The Lead
Why is the Taking The Lead network important to you?
"With 40 experienced and diverse members across various humanitarian causes, we are well positioned to provide exceptional support to fellow refugee-led organisations. We're excited to leverage our network's resources and communication channels, and equally eager to learn from our peers."
With more funding and resources, our organisation could...
"more effectively contribute to the development of our community and facilitate more access to services curated for refugees."
A shift from negative to positive narratives about refugees would lead to...
"that refugees could live and work in a community which respects their rights, and this would create a direct impact on development."
If refugees could influence decisions that affect them, it would mean...
"strengthened relationships between refugees and their host communities."
