There are more than 65 million refugees and internally displaced people worldwide, the highest level ever recorded. This offers a challenge to all of us. Pope Francis urges us to see these refugees as more than statistics, but as persons, each with a face, a name and a story. In response to this challenge, Jesuit Refugee Service launched the the Global Education Initiative. Through the campaign, JRS is committed to raising $35 million and doubling the number of people served in our education projects to more than 240,00 by the year 2020.
