Perhaps one of the boldest changes a woman can embark upon is to uproot her family to break away from a situation at home that is violent and unsafe for herself and for her children.

Why we're contributing 1% of revenue to the refugee crisis and why you should too

There are more than 63 million refugees and IDPs (internally displaced people) worldwide. That’s one in every 113 people on earth. That’s the population of the UK, or France, or California and Texas being pushed out of their home.  In Greece alone, 43 refugees and IDPs arrive each day.  At MOVE Guides, it is our mission to make it easy to move around the world.  We see immigration and global mobility as a force for good. We see a world where people, goods and capital flow freely.  We see a world where countries embrace the benefits of immigrants and see power in their diversity.  Migrants are 3% of the US population and 27.5% of entrepreneurs.  They generate 9% of GDP.  They are our friends, our colleagues, our parents, our grandparents, our great grandparents, our heritage and our fellow humans.
