    Many Ways to Give

    We believe that giving is an incredibly personal experience – and that’s why people choose to give in so many different ways. But deciding how to give can also be an overwhelming experience. We’ve compiled some of the most common ways that people choose to support refugees and the American Refugee Committee. Please use the information provided as a guide but know that at the American Refugee Committee we remain open to new and different ways of giving.

    Helping make Kyaka a greener place to live

    Day 164

    Mango A Go Go

    Changemakers 365 is all about doing the doable. It’s about opening our eyes to the opportunities to make an impact in a person’s life with relatively few resources – and making change each and every day of the year.

    In Kyaka

    Kyaka Refugee Settlement is home to many varieties of lush plant life. This plant friendly environment creates a lot of potential for farming livelihoods projects – but people need a boost to make them happen.

    Many refugees living in Kyaka already have a vast knowledge of farming, so we knew how we could help…Saplings!

    We learned that mango trees are an incredible way to make money in Kyaka. The environment suits the trees but there aren’t many of them, making them have a high value at the market!

    Our team in Kyaka knew some folks who we knew could benefit from a mango tree and its fruit, and we gave them the saplings!

    These trees will live on to produce both delicious fruit and a little profit. The trees will also help to stop deforestation, a problem at the settlement.

    How sweet it is to make some change!
