Graduating to Resilience Summit Brings Together More than 200 participants to Celebrate the Success of Cohort One

AVSI-USA hosted a hybrid, full-day, learning summit with the Society for International Development, US Chapter (SID-US) on Tuesday, June 21, 2022, in Washington, DC. The Summit marked an important milestone as AVSI concluded Cohort One activities of the Graduating to Resilience Activity, funded by USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA). Held the week of #WorldRefugeeDay, the Summit was a celebration of our participants, who are the inspiration of our work.

How graduating to resilience supported refugees and communities needs during covid-19

2020 may not have been the year we dreamed of, nor did we see it coming. But it will most certainly be one we will never forget. Everyone around the world had to re-adjust to a new way of life. Millions lost their livelihoods and shelter, struggling to make ends meet; millions lost their loved ones. We at AVSI have also lost one of our dear colleagues and friends.
