What We Do
Benson Area Refugee Taskforce (BART) is now REFUGEE WOMEN RISING (RWR). For 10 years, BART was a catalyst for meaningful action to support refugees in Omaha through education, empowerment and relationship. After listening to various refugee communities throughout Omaha, RWR is pivoting to invest in an often-overlooked population—providing the tools for refugees women to become empowered & autonomous.
Through "right relationships", we collaborate with refugee women to further themselves personally & professionally.
Our HomeDish dinner program invites women to sit with & listen to the stories of refugee women, while enjoying foods from their homelands. HomeDish is a co-creative experience, mutually benefitting refugee chefs & guests.
Our upcoming programming will include culturally-appropriate self-care workshops, driver's education for women, cultural integration experiences & multilingual financial education.
