We Are One

No One Left Behind

War, displacement, and trauma have often interrupted the educational and social processes of refugee and immigrant youth. Many of them struggle to adjust to a new culture and to overcome trauma experienced in their countries of origin, contributing to low self-esteem, increase feelings of uncertainty and anxiety.

We Are One focus in supporting immigrant and refugee youth to develop and accomplish their individual goals, pursue their unique passions and interests, investment in their communities, share talents, and serve others. 

 Women To Women
The powe of language, the gift of friendship, and the joy of independence
Household responsibilities, low self-esteem, illiteracy, fewer role models, and lower expectations prevent immigrand and refugee women from becoming active witin their families and communities.
Women to Women program wants to increase the independence and reduce the isolation of these women by teaching them basic English and pratical living skill in the security of their own homes and communities.

African Families Synergy vision is a world where: 
- Everyone has access to security, health, education, and enjoy life of equal opportunity
- Worth and dignity of every person is valued and cannot be limited by gender, race, ethnicity, class,                
disability or age;

- Love and forgiveness should be the foundation upon which is built a more secure, comfortable and
peaceful life.

We believe in the tremendous force of love that wipes selfishness out the hearts and builds bridges between people
