Our Resources

Over the course of the MiFC project official lifetime, we have learnt and acquired numerous lessons and resources thanks to the remarkable contributions of the staff and participants who made it possible.

To ensure that this knowledge and expertise is not wasted, we have compiled all of our findings, reports, surveys and guides here into one easy, accessible page.

The information here is designed to be shared with others who wish to help Migrants and Refugees create positive and meaningful contributions in their communities.
