The Cape Town Refugee Centre (CTRC) is a South African non-profit, non goverment organisation that works with vulnerable refugees and asylum seekers.  We strive to improve the quality of life of refugees and asylum seekers by meeting their basic needs on a short-term basis, and enabling them to become self-reliant and self sufficient through various empowerment opportunities. 

Our mission is to engage refugees and asylum seekers in improving the quality of their lives through:-

  • capacity building,
  • education
  • psychological and emotional support
  • networking
  • lobbying
  • advocacy and integration into their host communities

In partnership with other local, national, and international organizations and individuals, CTRC continues working to create a safe, welcoming, and supportive community in which refugees and asylum seekers can thrive.
