Our Mission

Refugee Pathways envisions a world in which all refugees can relocate safely and find protection in a humane and dignified way.

Too many refugees and internally displaced people face hardships when seeking protection in another country. Refugee Pathways’ mission is to provide reliable information on resettlement pathways as they seek protection and safety through relocation.

Refugee Pathways seeks to empower displaced people in their decision-making process and search for legal and safe passage. It is our mission to do this through an online platform providing free access to comprehensive information concerning legal and safe complementary relocation programs, such as humanitarian visas, family reunification, academic scholarship and private sponsorship to ensure that every displaced person can reach safety in dignity. We aim to encourage and empower displaced people to make well-informed decisions about their resettlement, without having to turn to traffickers in their desperation. 


We are focusing on providing information on the following four categories of complementary protection pathways:

Academic Scholarship
Family Reunification
Humanitarian Visa
Private Sponsorship

Our website and the online platform offer refugees and displaced people a regularly updated list of country-specific programs that fit within these categories, as well as guidance on how to access them as a means to realize safe relocation and protection.


Our goals are threefold:

  1. Decrease the amount of time refugees and internally displaced people are in an unsafe places and separated from their families;
  2. Raise awareness among displaced people about safe complementary pathways to resettlement;
  3. Encourage and empower refugees and other displaced people to make well-informed decisions on how to reach safety and protection through complementary resettlement pathways.
