Community Outreach

The Community Outreach Program maintains contact with both individual community members as well as Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) in the Greater Cairo area to improve refugee services in Egypt. The Outreach Program recognizes that the most effective support provided to refugees in acute need is provided within refugee communities, often with little or no assistance and support from larger, better-resourced organizations. The program collects vital data on each CBO in forcibly displaced communities and assesses the organization’s needs and capacities so as to be able to provide targeted assistance and opportunities for growth.

The Outreach Program seeks to create a collaborative working environment among the various CBOs, and builds organizational capacities to improve the organizational structure of CBOs to best serve their target communities.
