  • Promoting Economic and Social Rights Through Research.

  •  Alleviating Poverty.

  • Supporting Refugees, Victims of Modern-Day Slavery and Marginalised People.

  • Helping Disadvantaged Kids and Homeless Individuals.

Refuge Network International is a non-profit humanitarian organisation whose mission is to fight against social injustices, empower the marginalized, and alleviate human suffering principally through the promotion of Economic and Social Rights (ESR) in pragmatic and innovative ways.

 

We are a network of three non-profit organisations comprising Refuge Network, No Poverty Campaign, and Charity Across Borders. We work with the homeless, victims of human trafficking, refugees, individuals living in abject poverty, and other marginalized groups. 

With the dedication of our volunteers, staff, and partners, we strive to improve the lives of the needy. Contact us to see what you can do to bring about positive change.

RNI MEDIA CAMPAIGN

Documenting Social Injustices,
  Making Invisible People Visible,
       
Giving Voice to the Voiceless

Photography has played a significant role in advancing human rights. Images possess the potential to expose suffering, oppression and injustices. A picture can mobilise a thousand voices and attract an army of helpers to a just cause. Through our interviews, videos, and photographs, we strive to empower the downtrodden by documenting social injustices, making invisible homeless people visible, and giving voice to marginalised communities.
