ORAM - Organization for Refuge Asylum & Migration

A nonprofit organization

ORAM, Organization for Refuge, Asylum and Migration is a pioneer in advocating for the protection and well-being of extremely vulnerable LGBTIQ refugees and asylum seekers globally. ORAM is recognized as the first international NGO to assist people fleeing persecution based on their sexual orientation and gender identity and has since become a thought leader in LGBTIQ migration.

We have a long and proud history educating and training refugee professionals on the particular needs of LGBTIQ asylum seekers and supporting them navigate the long asylum process from the moment they arrive in their first country of asylum to being resettled to a safe third country. We collaborate with local partners and our beneficiaries to ensure that our work is built around the people we serve.
