JRS’s mission is to accompany, serve and advocate for and with refugees
A comprehensive approach to achieving maximum impact in the support of refugees
With a comprehensive approach, we provide refugee assistance in the form of legal and social assistance, financial assistance, psychological assistance, medical assistance, and educational, cultural, and accommodation services.
CAMPAIGNS FOR A WELCOMING SOCIETY
Promoting solidarity, diversity, and openness for a more inclusive society
We inform the public accurately and organize campaigns to raise public awareness through media, online, and group events.
ADVOCACY FOR STRUCTURAL CHANGES
Advocating for their rights to self representation in the shaping of policies that impact their own lives
We monitor the legislative and practice processes and propose measures to improve them. We engage in lobbying, research, and analysis. We collaborate with other organizations and produce best practice manuals.
TRAINING TO BUILD A BETTER RESPONSE
Developing best practices, supported by training and capacity-building for stakeholders
Through our training activities, we provide assistance to organizations and authorities. We conduct seminars for judges, lawyers, teachers, and other stakeholders. We train future practitioners and volunteers.
We are involved in establishing policies, practices, or legislation and we are providing a safe space to prevent people from being detained for migration-related reasons.
We work to improve access to the territory and create fair asylum and migration procedures.
We support people from their arrival until they are self-sufficient in order to reduce social and economic marginalization and build a more cohesive and inclusive society.
Throughout our programs, we provide early childhood education, adult learning, and livelihood programs that create long-term, durable impacts on communities.
