The KPMG Difference

Together with KPMG’s support, we can restore agency to the lives of our program participants.


Hour by hour, the news informs us about the complex problems throughout the world, and the refugee crisis is one of them. International Refugee Day commemorates the obstacles refugees face each year, while also celebrating their courage and strength. According to the United Nations, there are 65.3 million forcibly displaced people around the world. In addition, 86% of the world’s refugees are hosted by developing countries, including Rwanda.

The Refugee Empowerment and Support Task Force (REST) is working on projects to assist Burundian refugees living in Rwanda: teaching young men to farm, equipping women with sewing machines and training to help them build businesses, and making education accessible for the kids. With KPMG's support, we can expand our programs and make impactful change for the lives of refugees!
