CLINIC’s text4refugees project is an innovative effort to reach more refugees and asylees in a unique way – through their cell phones. Research shows that even newly arrived refugees have cell phones and communicate in high numbers via text message. Refugees, asylees and anyone interested in learning more about citizenship will benefit from our monthly text messages about the citizenship application process. This project is funded by the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
Messages are available in 6 languages: English, Spanish, Arabic, Nepali, French and Somali
