A UNA-USA Campaign in support of refugees

There are currently 65.3 million people forcibly displaced from their homes--the highest figure ever recorded. Among them are 21.3 million refugees of whom more than half are children caught up in conflict or disaster. Children who just want a chance at a normal life, to be able to go to school and learn, as all young people should be able to do. A refugee child that is not in school is at heightened risk of being harmed, trafficked, or radicalized by extremist groups.

The UN refugee agency, UNHCR, is working to prevent a lost generation by educating refugee children in camps and other settings around the world. But help is needed. In response to this call, UNA-USA has recently partnered with UNHCR to launch the Adopt-a-Future initiative, which links Americans directly to students and schools around the world. The campaign enables partners and supporters to raise funds to support either refugee education worldwide or to build a classroom for a specific refugee serving school. 

Recognizing the critical need for support for this important initiative, Greater Lansing UNA has undertaken a campaign to raise $30,000 to provide a new classroom at a refugee serving school which will serve the needs of at least 40 children for 10 years.

We are actively seeking partnerships with other groups, organizations, businesses, foundations, faith communities, and individuals to meet this ambitious goal.

Here's how you can help! 

  • Help persuade organizations, groups, and faith communities with which you are affiliated to sign on as partners in GL-UNA's Adopt-a-Future initiative.
  • Volunteer to host a fundraising dinner, a bake sale, a car wash or something entirely different. Donate whatever money is raised during the event to Adopt-a-Future.
  • Enlist your church youth group or scouting troops in a fundraising campaign.
  • Make a cash donation. You can do so on-line at You can also mail a check made payable to GL-UNA to PO Box 1853, East Lansing, MI 48826. Please write Adopt-a-Future in the memo line.
  • Download a printable brochure here to invite friends, family members or organizations to help raise funds to educate refugee children.
Help us make a difference in the lives of refugee children! 
Together we can do this! 
Thank You!
