“Bringing an abundant world of amazing people together to work on the toughest problems”
American Refugee Committee is and always has been about amazing global citizens taking action to change our world. More than 35 years ago, ARC has deployed its first volunteer relief mission on Thai-Cambodian border. Since then, the team has grown into 3,000 determined people who are characterized by their incredible energy and belief that anything is possible.
Today, we’re facing challenging global humanitarian crises that require 21st Century solutions. But we’ve found that co-creating together with impassioned, dedicated people, limited only by their own imaginations, remains the key to designing new solutions that resonate. We still believe that ARC should exist, first and foremost, as a platform for realizing the goodwill of everyday people.
We’ve found that something incredible will result as long as we begin the journey with amazing people, agree on a destination and move together towards it transparently and open to possibility.
“We should move forward not with the resigned shrug of one destined to push an impossibly large stone up a hill, but rather in awe of the abundant opportunities open to us and the wonder of working with human beings”
President, American Refugee Committee
In addition to the above, ARC assisted beneficiaries in securing financial assistance/loans for startups.
