As thousands of refugees from Afghanistan arrive in many countries for resettlement or onward
movement, the ATA and YATA initiated this new part of the official website to be able to
provide information – international and from all ATA member associations, in order to help
Afghan refugees wherever they try to begin their new lives.
Some of our ATA members have already joined with NGOs or other private aid groups to help
meet the needs of refugees coming into their country. This resource page on our website will
help ATA member associations to get involved to assist the Afghan refugees.
Therefore, in this place, ATA and YATA will publish information on international organizations,
but also examples of good practices on how our member associations are assisting refugees in
their countries, and also to inform and inspire other ATA member associations to play a role.
We are aware that ATA and YATA can have a major impact given that its reach is broad across
Europe, the Middle East, and North America and it runs deep into Allied and Partner countries.
Therefore, we should use our greatest asset – our members – to help out where we can. Our
cooperation will help us all do a better job assisting the refugees!
