Education is a powerful driver of development and one of the strongest instruments for reducing poverty and improving health, gender equality, peace, and stability. In addition, lifelong learning for adults has regained prominence on the world stage due to the global refugee crisis which requires integration of workforce outside their familiar home markets.

UMR’s Education and Livelihood focuses on refugee socioeconomic integration into destination countries, through language training, income-generating vocational training, and psychosocial support; all of which are aimed at helping destabilized and impoverished households achieve socioeconomic self-reliance.
