About Re: Build

Re: Build is committed to GENERATE AND SHARE EVIDENCE FOR INNOVATIVE, SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOODS SOLUTIONS that can be adopted to support refugees and host residents in other cities in East Africa and beyond.

The Re: Build program is FUNDED BY THE IKEA FOUNDATION and is currently under implementation in Kampala and Nairobi cities.

The IRC is the Lead Partner and has been coordinating a consortium of local and international partners to deliver the program interventions.

The program seeks for urban refugees and vulnerable host residents to achieve economic self-reliance and benefit from strengthened urban economic, regulatory, and social environments.

It aims to enable change at varying levels, from better access to livelihoods opportunities and inclusive services within communities, to improved refugee-related policies and more targeted and effective service delivery by national, regional, and global actors.

Some of the key features of the program’s approach are flexible funding, adaptive design, and continuous knowledge and evidence generation.
