We reached our $30K goal in less than 30 days! Next step: refugee sponsorship proces

SCHOOLS WELCOME REFUGEES

The Dewson School Community Refugees Welcome is a community group applying to sponsor a refugee family.  We will be putting together an application, raising approximately $30,000 to financially support a family, and providing settlement assistance on arrival.

 

The Dewson School Community Refugees Welcome also provides support to other schools considering an initiative like this one through our sister organization Schools Welcome Refugees. There are tools and resources available on the Schools Welcome Refugees website you can share freely with your school community if you are considering something similar.
