What We Do

Benson Area Refugee Taskforce (BART) is now REFUGEE WOMEN RISING (RWR).

After listening sessions with communities throughout Omaha, the need for space & services for refugee women became explicit. Our intimate, community-curated programming includes driver's education, HomeDish dinners & culturally-intelligent self-care workshops.

Our Mission:
Through compassionate, culturally-sensitive programming and relationships, we collaborate with refugee women to further themselves personally and professionally.

Our Values:
We prioritize human dignity, hospitality, intentionality, lived experience & solidarity.

Our Vision:
Reawaken refugee women's inherent human dignity.

Interesting Info

We pledge to include women's voices in each initiative we undertake.
Refugees must repay the cost of their plane ticket (known as a travel loan) beginning 6 months after their arrival to the U.S. Average cost is $1200/ticket.
A driver's license provides limitless opportunity. RWR's driving classes are by & for refugee women.
