Road of Hope


What we do

We want to build a bridge between different realities and world views.

Our projects support refugees in different challenges of the integration journey, helping them attain the confidence to utilize the opportunities and resources available to them. This empowerment focuses on tackling emotional barriers and generating personal growth. We assist refugees and other newcomers in their needs to overcome obstacles, implement changes and retake control over their own lives so that independence and autonomy can be achieved. 

Our work relies on four fundamental pillars which enable refugee integration, namely:

Although, bonding constitutes the distinguishing feature of Road of Hope’s efforts. There are various reasons why refugees struggle to rely entirely on the system and the people designated to help them. We respond to this difficulty by walking alongside and welcoming each refugee in an individualized and personalised manner, respecting the particularity of their culture and background, and showing compassion and empathy. This enables the foundation of relationships of trust and reciprocity, and of a safe environment, wherein they feel at ease to share their needs so that we can attend to them.

We equip newcomers with the tools and information to thrive in their host country. The initiatives developed are devised to facilitate the learning and adaptation process. In order to settle in their host society, it is central to encourage the social engagement of refugees and their participation in the host society. 

With this intent, Road of Hope provides plenty of opportunities for social interaction, cultural exchange and bonding between local communities and newcomers. This allows for the clearing of misconceptions and the exchange of perspectives, fomenting the understanding and trust of both parties.
