We are a local and international non-governmental organisation. So, we work with teams of dedicated local and foreign-based volunteers who are passionate about the poor, the helpless and the hopeless. We want to be a voice for the voiceless, a refuge for the vulnerable and a source of strength for the weak.

International Advisory Board & Volunteers 

  • Charles Gimoh

    Founder & Executive Director 

    Charles is the Founder of Refuge Network International. He is a Consultant in international human rights law, an author, and an expert on strategic migration. Having lived on three continents and with visits to over 30 countries, many of them poor, he has witnessed the ravages of poverty and has seen the devastating effects of social inequality in communities across the globe.  His passion for social justice, borne out of a vision to see the equitable distribution of humanity’s collective socio-economic and cultural patrimony to benefit the world’s poor and marginalised peoples, led to the founding of RNI and catalysed his ongoing research efforts focused on finding answers to some of the many challenges facing the global poor. He holds a Master of Laws degree in human rights law, from Birkbeck Law School, University of London. Charles coordinates the activities of RNI globally. He also heads HC and JP International, two other non-profits.

    Volunteer Teams

    At RNI, everyone is a volunteer, and the organisation is a non-profit. That way, we are able to deploy the totality of our financial resources towards supporting the cause. We work with groups of volunteers on all our projects. They are a vital part of our team and we would be unable to do anything significant without our dedicated volunteers in various countries where we work.
