The Refugee Rights Toolkit and Mentorship Program combines online and hybrid learning in order to support refugee rights leaders setting up or managing projects or NGOs in any country.

Refugee Rights Toolkit

The Refugee Rights Toolkit is an open-access online manual available at www.refugeerightstoolkit.org. Registration is necessary (see link for further information).

The Toolkit offers concise, practical advice on all aspects of setting up and managing an NGO or program (from fundraising and relationship-building to human resources, communications, finance and results-based management), and on how to advocate for refugee rights through legal aid, community legal empowerment, policy advocacy and strategic litigation.

There is a small section on the human rights of refugees, though the Toolkit is more oriented towards capacity building in leadership and management than it is towards substantive legal knowledge.

The online materials are aimed at refugee rights leaders anywhere in the world.

Whilst much material is currently available online, the Toolkit is currently in the editing stage, and we would welcome expressions of interest from Editors with experience in delivering refugee rights programs. Please contact Laura Parker at refugeerightstoolkit@asylumaccess.org for more information.

Mentorship Program

In conjunction with the Toolkit, Asylum Access offers individualized mentoring to selected refugee rights leaders, providing them with access to experienced refugee rights advocates.

The Mentorship Program is in the pilot stage, though we are open to hearing from organizations or leaders that are interested in finding out more. Please write to refugeerightstoolkit@asylumaccess.org for further details.
