Where We Work
Restoring dignity in urban displacement with refugee-led partners
RPI is working with refugee-led/grassroots nonprofit implementing partners in the Middle East to co-design, fund, monitor, and advise humanitarian projects for refugees, internally displaced persons (IDPs), and local communities. Below is a list of locations for completed projects that we have overseen and supported for Syrian civilians displaced in Turkey, Syria, and Lebanon. These have been implemented on-site by our leading local partners. We plan to continue this work and expand our collaboration over time to serve IDPs and refugees in Yemen, Iraq, and Jordan.
