Knowledge Exchange RISE: The Financial Lives of Refugees Living in Uganda

Opportunity International and its partners launched the Refugees, Innovations, Self-reliance and Empowerment (RISE) project in June 2019 to help integrate and financially include refugee and host communities, promote self-reliance among refugees, and stimulate local economic activity in refugee settlements and surrounding host communities. Opportunity gathered quantitative and qualitative data on refugees’ financial needs and behaviors using financial diaries and other human-centered design approaches in order to make informed and appropriate investment decisions.
