CFSI’s Urban Refugee Projects is in collaboration with UNHCR which funds CFSI to provide counselling and legal assistance; ensure access to basic services such as education, health care, and social services; and promote greater cooperative effort to the benefit of refugees.
Recognizing the need to complement these services, CFSI is trying to raise money from other sources for computer skills training, livelihood projects, job placement, and other services that will increase the prospects, over time, of refugee self-reliance.
