Refugee Outreach International (ROI) assists refugees in assimilating and resettling, so they may support themselves in their new communities. We believe all refugees should be able to feel safe, self sufficient, and  advocate for a better future for themselves and their children.  The organization was inspired by the personal experience of the founders who while trying to support refugees in the US and abroad in camps, recognized a clear need for support in language skills, and education opportunities.


"ROI supports refugees with issues that were unable to be managed by other organizations.  We work closely with families to assess unmet critical needs and either identify teams of volunteers to assist, or fundraise to help alleviate their obstacles."

- Rana Shanawani, President of ROI
