    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.

    Seeing the potential in a blank space

    Day 160

    Painting Positivity

    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.

    Many people pass by the counseling space at Kyaka Refugee Settlement every day. The waiting area is made up of two huge walls with nothing on them – not exactly very inspiring.

    We thought of an opportunity – What if we could use those walls like two huge billboards, to spread positivity to the community?

    We asked our friends, the Revolution Artists, about their ideas to put on the wall…and then the work began!

    They had no shortage of thoughts for important messages that could benefit the community and those in the waiting area.

    Their images showed families speaking out against violence together, youth using their voice to make a difference, and the importance of equality and respect.

    We even added a little nod to the bee keeping projects and to our wonderful colleague Colleen, who loves bees and has pushed to reduce sexual abuse in the humanitarian field!

    It’s something small, but an important reminder of the powerful impact positive messaging and art can have in our everyday lives.
