Innovative Human Rights NGO Seeks
Community Outreach Assistant in Bangkok, Thailand
Asylum Access is a leading refugee human rights organization headquartered in Oakland, CA with substantial operations in three countries plus partnerships in additional countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Asylum Access is the only global organization working to make human rights a reality for refugees in first countries of refuge. Asylum Access envisions a world where refugees are seen as people with rights, not just people with needs. Asylum Access believes that by empowering refugees to assert their human rights, we can create effective, lasting solutions for refugees around the world.
Founded in 2007, Asylum Access Thailand (AAT) is a non-governmental organization and forms part of the Asylum Access family. We work to make human rights a reality for refugees and continue to strengthen access to existing protection mechanisms through direct legal assistance, information dissemination and community legal empowerment (CLE) programs for our refugee clients. We believe all refugees deserve a fair chance at a new life. Since most refugees cannot go home and very few are resettled, we find ways to help refugees live safely, move freely, work and attend school while they are in Thailand because when refugees can begin rebuilding their lives, communities thrive.
