Iskashitaa Refugee Network is a grass roots organization that helps rebuild refugee lives through our partnerships with volunteers and local organizations. Staff and volunteers unite refugees and the community through unique programs designed to empower the refugees. Programs emphasize community connections, sharing, and English language practice.
Iskashitaa harvests and distributes 100,000 pounds of unwanted produce from local homes and farms each year. This food goes to refugees and their families, food banks, and Iskashitaa's partner organizations instead of ending up in landfills. These harvests, among other programs, are an opportunity for refugees and Tucson locals to interact, creating community and lasting friendships.
Iskashitaa serves refugees from Afghanistan, Bhutan, Burma, Burundi, Central African Republic, Cuba, Democratic Republic of Congo, The Republic of Congo, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iran, Iraq, Liberia, Russia, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, and Syria.
