Our Unique Value Proposition

Our unique proposition is to create a win-win situation for Forcibly Displaced Persons (FDPs) and the African private sector by engaging and enabling the private sector to expand access to education and livelihood opportunities for forcibly displaced persons (FDPs). Amahoro enables FDPs to build better futures for themselves and their communities and creates value for African businesses and society. This approach of partnering with the private sector to create shared value and sustainable impact affirms our belief that every FDP deserves the opportunity to thrive. We are committed to creating a world where they can do so.

Our Vision:

We envision a world where refugees are not just welcomed, but are celebrated for the diversity and resilience they bring. A world where they have access to the resources and opportunities they need to build a better future for themselves and their communities.

Our Mission:

Our mission is to ignite a transformative shift in the African private sector, unlocking the full potential of refugees to become valuable contributors to society through innovative solutions that expand access to education and sustainable livelihood opportunities. We aim to create shared value and sustainable impact by partnering with the private sector, building a more prosperous, inclusive, and equitable Africa for all.

Our Board

Our board consists of highly valued advisors who provide crucial guidance and insights to ensure the success of our organization. They advise our Coalition’s team on optimizing our impact and on critical aspects of program implementation. Our board members share one common thread – they are all deeply connected to the displacement crisis either through their personal experiences of displacement or through their commitment to dedicating their careers to work with FDPs.
