Mexico is characterized as a country of origin, transit, destination and return. Migrants, asylum seekers, refugees and victims of human trafficking all transit through what has become one of the largest migration corridors in the world.
RET’s interventions are a response to the problems brought forth by the unprecedented arrival of families to the southern border of Mexico, fleeing gang-based violence in their home countries of Guatemala, El Salvador Honduras and Nicaragua.
A lack of basic necessities, access to schools, child labor, refugee application processes, and organized crime are all examples of what displaced populations face, while both internal and external displaced people have to contend with complex integration issues.
RET’s projects support refugees with humanitarian aid assistance as well as providing them with the legal aid to obtain refugee status.
RET also works to strengthen displaced families, and displaced youth to integrate them in the host communities.
