Mission Statement

Iskashitaa Refugee Network seeks to empower refugees by creating opportunities to use their knowledge and skills to help families better integrate within the Tucson community while gaining life skills that serve them in America. Our goal is to develop programs that welcome and motivate refugees, improve their confidence and English skills, and facilitate acculturation.

Description

The nonprofit organization Iskashitaa has harvested over 75,000 pounds of a variety of fruits and vegetables. We are recognized locally, nationally and internationally for our work in promoting local food resources, advocating for and with refugees and empowering people by harvesting in neighborhoods building a better stronger, fair community. Iskashitaa is furthermore dedicated to raising awareness about issues that impact refugees and other marginalized groups, working to eradicate barriers for their sustainable transition into this society, and serving as a liaison for meaningful collaborations among people working for the benefit of the refugee community in Tucson. Our programs include: Harvesting and Cooking, Food Redistribution. Sewing and Crafts, Swimming, Events and Job Training.

The coordinator, Barbara, is very friendly and helpful. She is always willing to help you do more but also supports your interests. Now I work there and I love being a part of all the excitement!
