Who We Are

In January 2017, MOVE Guides launched Mobility4All committing 1% of revenue and resources to provide mobility to those in need. Mobility4All began when MOVE Guides’ Founder Brynne Kennedy visited the Calais Jungle Refugee Camp in Calais, France with our partner Help Refugees. Brynne was taken back by the scale of the humanitarian crisis, and the hope and opportunity that mobility to a new location in the world gave to these refugees. Today, Mobility4All is run by a committee of 20 “Mobility Champions” at MOVE Guides, who have all experienced their own hope and opportunity through an open, mobile and equal world.

Our Goal

We provide contributions on the ground through our partner Help Refugees, raise awareness through education and events, and build products to aid resettlement.

Who We Help

What is a refugee?

According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), a refugee is, “…someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence. A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group.” Refugees are people who, by definition, have fled their home country. People who have been forced to flee their home but not their home country are called Internally Displaced Persons.

Where do they come from?

‘Country of Origin’ is the term used to describe the country from which a refugee has fled. Currently, 53% of refugees worldwide come from just three countries of origin: Syria (4.9 million people), Afghanistan (2.7 million), and Somalia (1.1 million). In all of these countries, and in most countries of origin, it is violence (such as war or gang violence) or threat of violence that causes refugees to flee.

Hear their stories

Refugees come from all walks of life, and have different backgrounds, professions, hobbies and religions. But they are united in having experienced impossible choices and painful separation. Learn more about them as people and hear their stories to understand how difficult it is for a refugee to achieve what the rest of us take for granted: life, liberty, security and dignity.
