Our Mission and Work

Mission

Our mission is to empowering the most marginalized populations of New Mexico including refugee, other immigrant local low income women  girls and their families, to attain self sufficiency through education, economic development, and strengthened life skills, thereby addressing the social, economical, emotional and educational needs of their children. We are a New Mexico Not for profit organization and an economic arm of the Immigrant Refugee Resource Village Of Albuquerque that has a 501 c (3) status ( www.irrva.com)

Main focus is to build strong financial futures for vulnerable children, their families and communities. Many refugees, immigrants, asylum seekers, local low income marginalized families lack the earnings, resources, assets or social support systems that are necessary to meet their needs to thrive well. The majority of participants in our organization were born and raised in refugee camps, come from impoverished countries or are born and raised in New Mexico impoverished communities that are disconnected from the economic mainstream.

Microenterprise Development Program: This program enables refugees, immigrants and low income people hit hard by hardship to become  financially independent by helping them develop capital resources and business  expertise to start, expand, or strengthen their own business.
