We build a meaningful life for and with the displaced. When we find people displaced from their homes, countries, or lives, our instinct may be to focus only on their basic needs. And that is essential. But it’s also not a life. A life is filled with joy, dignity, connection, and purpose. And that’s what we aim to build.
Now, we're taking the next big step on a journey to unleash and put into action that same abundant belief. This year, American Refugee Committee will become Alight. We’re the same organization with the same people doing the same critical work – providing health care and clean water, shelter, protection, and economic opportunity to more than 3.5 million people in 17 countries each year. But in solidarity with the people we serve who are too often defined by a single dark moment in their lives, we’re dropping the label ‘refugee.’
Alight, formerly the American Refugee Committee (ARC), is an international non-governmental organization registered with the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs to provide integrated health; nutrition; and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH); food security and livelihoods; community protection; and peacebuilding services to nearly 2 million people annually.
Alight came to Sudan in 2004 as one of the first humanitarian responders to the emergency needs of some 500,000 war-affected IDPs and host populations.
Today, Alight operates in 6 states to serve displaced populations and host communities in Kassala state, Gedaref State, West Kordofan, and East and South Darfur states with the potential to add other places in the future.
Our field offices in Kassala, Gedaref, Nyala, El Daein, serve as the key state hubs for program delivery and support and organize the work of our 1000 employees deployed on the field.
