Refugee Welfare Association Cameroon (REWAC) aims to end the systematic violations of the rights of vulnerable migrants and to promote, defend, and enforce international humanitarian law.
Our programs include:
- Advocacy- We train Lawyers on the rights of vulnerable migrants as well as organizing conferences, talk shows, seminars, and workshops on issues pertaining to vulnerable migrants. We raise awareness about the rights of migrants within the refugee community, police, the Judiciary, community leaders, religious authorities, traditional rulers, the media, and other main relevant target groups. The long term goal under the advocacy program is the training of a corps of pro bono legal practitioners who will provide legal assistance to vulnerable migrants passing through the status determination (RSD) process.
- Food Security- We build strategic partnerships with other major stakeholders for food distribution to the over 600,000 vulnerable migrant population in Cameroon. We distribute emergency food and non-food items as well as food packages to enable them to withstand the immediate physical challenges of their new environment.
- Education- Vocational training for vulnerable migrants provide skills and trades for immediate job acquisition and income generation. We also engage in support programs for primary, secondary, and higher-level schooling for migrant children.
