Become or Find a Host
We have met so many wonderful and inspiring people through this project, and discovered that we can all help refugees where we live. The Refugees Welcome initiative began in Germany as a way to match those with a spare room with refugees; it now has chapters working in 20 countries. Local religious and volunteer groups can also offer a way to be connected with refugees who could use your spare room. Check out these links or ask for a recommendation:
For additional inspiration, here’s a great article by UNHCR’s Melissa Flemming on 8 practical ways to help refugees
Integration Portals & Integration Initiatives
- Find local (integration) initiatives for asylum seekers/refugees
- Integration portal run by the Federal government
