ARC Protection Coordinator Jobs in Uganda


Who We Are

We are on a journey of becoming Alight, a new platform of amazing people and an organization providing lifesaving services and creating breakthrough solutions for and with the displaced.

For the past 40 years, we’ve called ourselves American Refugee Committee, an organization known for providing
quality care to millions of Refugees worldwide. But the truth is, we serve many different people – to include Refugees, Trafficked people, Displaced people, and Marginalized and Host communities too.

Through all the years and conversations, we’ve had with the people we serve, we’ve heard the same
thing time and time again – Refugee is not a label we want. We’re listening. And now, we’re taking off the nametag American Refugee Committee and becoming Alight.
