BIRS is a NGO that is dedicated to delivering refugee services. We empower people to build a better future beyond surviving. BIRS works with partners around the world to provide refugees with tools and opportunities to prevail over harsh situations. We work alongside refugee communities to find sustainable and holistic solutions in the areas of education, health and economic improvement.
We’re not here to run a program or complete a project - We’re here to work alongside friends who have enormous dignity and value.
We do not shy away from life’s complexity, nor do we take on the world’s challenges alone. We believe that collaborations with others -especially local communities – gives us the best chance to make a difference holistically.
We are continuously amazed by the beauty and diversity of the various cultures.Our local team is a microcosm of the multicultural society we work in, with all ethnicities and faiths.
We recognize that some of the areas we engage in have painful histories of exploitation. We are here not to take but to give, not to be served but to serve.
We work alongside refugee communities and host nations to find sustainable and holistic solutions in the areas of education, health and economic improvement.
