International Rescue Committee
Since the International Rescue Committee (IRC) was first founded at the request of Albert Einstein in 1933, the global team of more than 17,000 staff have helped people upended by conflict and crisis to survive, recover, and regain control of their lives. Today they work in more than 40 countries and over 25 U.S. and European cities, from conflict-affected countries like Yemen to resettlement communities like Boise, Idaho.
IRC focuses on five areas: ensuring safety from harm, improving health, increasing access to education, improving economic wellbeing, and ensuring people have the power to influence decisions that affect their lives. In all their programming, IRC address the unique needs of women and girls (who represent the majority of those displaced)—and the barriers to progress everywhere we work.
