The International Rescue Committee (IRC)responds to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The IRC leads the way from harm to home.
IRC Tanzania coordinates the provision of services across a broad range of sectors in the Kigoma district of Northwestern Tanzania, with the majority of programs currently being implemented in Nyarugusu refugee camp, home to approximately 64,000 Congolese refugees.

Within these contexts, IRC provides protection and basic assistance in the areas of Child and Youth Protection and Development, Community based rehabilitation for persons with disabilities and special needs, Gender based violence / Women’s protection and empowerment (WPE) and Primary health care at border posts for the Burundian new arrivals. In addition, IRC also does child protection work in the host communities surrounding the camps, in partnership with local government.
