Refuge Network International (RNI) is a non-profit humanitarian organisation that was set up to fight social injustice, empower the marginalised and alleviate human suffering principally through the promotion of Economic and Social Rights (ESR) in pragmatic and innovative ways. We work with refugees, victims of human trafficking and modern-day slavery, individuals living in abject poverty, and other marginalised groups.
Our vision is to see a free and fair world. One devoid of haunting poverty, senseless human suffering and social injustice.
Our mission is to work towards the advancement and realisation of Economic and Social Rights in poor communities and among deprived individuals to ensure fair access to an adequate standard of life.
We are passionate about the poor, the helpless and the hopeless. We want to be a voice for the voiceless, a refuge for the vulnerable and a source of strength for the weak.
We will not sit back and wait for change. As agents of change, we will take action to facilitate the change we want to see. We intend to make a difference by deploying all resources at our disposal to contribute towards the promotion and realisation of Economic and Social Rights (ESR) in poor marginalised communities via a simple four-fold action plan which is summarized as follows:
We are a research-based NGO and are therefore committed to devoting resources into disseminating well-researched information aimed at creating awareness on the issues at stake, highlighting areas of urgent need, and pointing the way forward in terms of positive response.
We are pragmatic, so RNI shall actively mobilize manpower, materials and money to channel wholly towards helping to address the needs and inequalities that exist in our areas of activity.
The direction of our work is localised and globalised. Our operation is both local, at community level, and international across nations. We are actively and directly involved within local communities in various nations to stimulate awareness and facilitate change at the grassroots where it matters most.
We shall work collaboratively with individuals, groups, faith-based entities, communities, corporate bodies, governments and international agencies to facilitate the fulfilment of socioeconomic rights.
SOCIOECONOMIC RIGHTS CHALLENGES.
We welcome collaborative partnerships with individuals, groups, corporate organisations and interested parties. Partner with us to promote change!
