Refugee Community Leadership
A place for women to convene and connect, each IINE site will help identify community leaders that can work with us to create goals, reduce gender-specific barriers, and find opportunities to aid in refugee women’s successful adjustment and integration.
Economic Empowerment Programming
To further refugee women’s participation in education, language classes, and job training, IINE will introduce new education and economic-focused programming that will include childcare and transportation support to help refugee women achieve greater personal and economic freedom.
Refugee Women’s Health Initiative
Involuntarily displaced, many refugee women and girls are survivors of human rights abuses, including sexual violence that can profoundly affect their reproductive health. Through focused programming, IINE will better support women’s access to trauma-based, culturally sensitive care, including quality health and mental wellness services.
Safe Women, Safe Girls Programming
As refugee women adjust to new social norms and opportunities for increased personal autonomy, their risk for gender-based violence increases. IINE will introduce new violence prevention, crisis response, and legal support.
