Nah We Yone – a grassroots community‐based organization in New York City
The non‐profit organization “Nah We Yone,” (NWY) was initially developed in New York City in 1997 in response to the large numbers of Sierra Leoneans
Nah We Yone (NWY), designed specifically to provide support to African refugees and asylum seekers, with a history of refugee trauma, war, and human rights abuses, who have fled to the New York City area.
NWY demonstrates the importance of drawing on cultural and community strengths and resilience when using limited resources to serve traumatized and displaced peoples who are struggling to adjust to a new cultural setting.
