Inua Advocacy is an independent civil society organisation that advocates for refugee rights in Malawi and beyond. Our vision is a world where no refugee is trapped in statelessness, and our mission is to ensure that all actors in refugee affairs are committed to promoting sustainable solutions that uphold human rights.
Refugees in Malawi do not have the right to work, own property, move freely, integrate or/and become citizens. This applies also to those who were born here from 1994 onwards, when Dzaleka camp was established. Confined to living in the refugee camp indefinitely, they must survive on monthly support from the World Food Programme (WFP), which is currently the equivalent of $ 5 per month per person.
We strive to see a healthy refugee policy developed and implemented in Malawi that focuses on self-reliance, participation and sustainability.
“The road to poverty eradication is dotted with the efforts of engaged communities that create solutions to their own problems.”
