The Shift is a game-changing new way to back refugees to rebuild their lives and help end the refugee crisis.
There are now more than 100 million people around the world who have been forced from their homes due to conflict, disaster or persecution*. The divide between ‘us’ and ‘them’ seems to be getting bigger and bigger, leaving more and more people living as refugees. Stuck in a devastating limbo, many live without the basics to survive; the right to work; a place to call home; and often, even hope for the future.
Our inspiring local partner, RefugePoint, will help refugees move from surviving on patchy aid handouts, to earning an income, to standing on their own two feet and feeling hopeful for the future again.
Backers will be joining refugees on each step of this intensive program, connecting with them and each other, and learning directly from RefugePoint.
Together, we will help build public support to scale up this unique approach, create more compassion for refugees here in Australia, advocate for a fairer international system and, little by little, help end the refugee crisis.
Will you join other committed backers in Australia to help kickstart this ground-breaking new program?
I can’t wait for you to join us on this journey!
