Asylum Access Mission

About

Asylum Access is an innovative international nonprofit dedicated to making refugee rights a reality. Asylum Access empowers refugees in Africa, Asia and Latin America to live safely, work, send children to school and rebuild their lives.

Mission

Asylum Access’s mission is to make refugee rights a reality in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Read more about how we achieve this mission here.

Vision

Asylum Access envisions a world where refugees are seen as people with rights, not just people with needs.  Asylum Access believes that by empowering refugees to assert their human rights, we can create effective, lasting solutions for refugees around the world.

Why is Asylum Access Different?

Asylum Access is the only international organization solely dedicated to making refugee rights a reality in first countries of refuge. Our unique combination of five integrated strategies provides grassroots assistance and changes the legal landscape for refugees and their host communities. By helping refugees assert their rights, we are putting power back into their hands. Our work transforms the traditional approach of endless humanitarian handouts to a sustainable solution that gives refugees the tools to provide for themselves and make choices about their own lives.Want to learn more?
