The Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) is creating a better world for refugees. WRC catalyzes transformative change to protect and empower women, children, and youth displaced by conflict and crisis.

Our Mission

WRC’s mission is to improve the lives and protect the rights of women, children, and youth displaced by conflict and crisis. We research their needs, identify solutions, and advocate for programs and policies to strengthen their resilience and drive change in humanitarian practice.

Our Vision

WRC’s vision is a world in which internally displaced and refugee women, children, and youth:

  • are safe, healthy, and self-reliant;
  • have their human rights respected and protected; and
  • inform and drive their solutions and development.
