World Refugee Day: Building Engagement in Displacement

On World Refugee Day, we stand with the 70M+ refugees who have been forced to flee their homes because of war, conflict, and persecution. Among this vulnerable population, women, youth, elderly people, and persons with disabilities, face even greater challenges. Social and traditional norms, accessibility, and economic hardship can hold people back or dissuade participation in an already challenging environment.

World Refugee Day: Strengthening Connections and Communities

When people are displaced from their homes, they are also displaced from their careers, livelihoods, and education. In camps for refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) and in non-camp communities where displaced people may settle, Blumont works with partners and the displaced communities to develop programs that help maintain and build skills, relationships, and new opportunities.
