Program Director | Financial Assistance to asylum seekers/refugees (FAAR)
Opportunity in Southeast Asia
A local NGO is seeking a program director for the FAAR Program (Financial Assistance to Asylum Seekers and Refugees). The FAAR program provides basic living costs for food, shelter, and medical needs for some of the most marginalized, poorest people on earth; specifically refugees and asylum seekers. This work focuses on some of the biggest humanitarian crises of the modern era: the movement of displaced peoples around the globe and the rising divide between economic classes. FAAR currently serves 55 families, including children under 12, who otherwise have no place to live, not enough food to eat, and insufficient access to medical help. In order to receive financial support, beneficiaries are encouraged to participate in activities that serve others, such as providing child care to other refugees, translating program documents, or teaching refugee children. Children in families receiving support are encouraged to participate in educational opportunities available in the NGO’s Learning Center.
