The Refugee Company

Experiences We Admire

If you do not know yet The Refugee Company work, you must. The work they are making in cooperating with refugees in order to quickly integrating them by supporting their talents and competences is amazing.

Tailors from The Refugee Company Atelier are now empowered because they are contributing with their knowledge to the society and their skills are recognised, proud of the work they make and the new things they also learn.

Focusing on many issues, but particularly in crafts and handmade work, The Refugee Company Save the Crafts project might be consider a very good practice to be replicated around the world. Despite The Refugee Company does not work exclusively with women, the business and organisational model apply is a source of inspiration.

Once again, we can say handicrafts can bring social change and empowerment. Because craftmanship work is based on personal competences and skills, because it brings a unique work, but also because it can strongly contribute to enhance the culture and know-how of our societies.

During the session organised at Dialogue Café, on Refugees Social Inclusion through Artisanship, Fleur Bakker, Director of Refugee Company shared with us the challenges but also the amazing results organisation is facing and getting in the implementation of this project.

Here below, you can find a very nice article written by STEPHANIE SALDAÑA on July 10, 2017 at Mosaic Stories where she focus on Omar and Khalil story.
