Description of the initiative:

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, joins the Government of the Philippines in welcoming six Rohingya refugees to the country as part of the Philippines’ pilot Complementary Pathways (CPath) program.

A landmark initiative that offers an opportunity for a durable solution for refugees, the Philippines’ CPath program provides select Rohingya youth with a safe and regulated avenue of admission and stay in the country through education. Aside from ensuring the refugees’ protection and facilitating their access to basic rights, the program also seeks to strengthen their skills and self-reliance capacities, giving them the tools to build better futures for themselves and their communities.
