Our Work in Ethiopia

JRS Ethiopia has well-established projects welcoming refugees in both urban and camp settings. JRS Ethiopia’s services include education, language classes, recreational initiatives, income-generating activities, emergency aid, and psychosocial services.

One of JRS’ projects in Ethiopia is the Refugee Community Centres (RCC) – unique facilities across Ethiopia that serve as havens for refugees and asylum seekers. At the RCCs, refugees receive educational and psychosocial support, gain new vocational skills, socialise, and build relationships with members of the refugee and host communities.
