The Brothers Campaign
The Brothers Campaign is an advocacy campaign established and supported by UK-based charity Refugee Biriyani & Bananas (RBB) in partnership with US-based non-profit organization In-Sight Collaborative.
The Brothers Campaign aims to raise awareness about the stigmas and biases put forth against single, male displaced persons and inequities in aid delivery to this population. This campaign as been ongoing for three years since Ruhi Akhtar of RBB first recognized the gaps in aid and enlisted help from the men in camp. She has since established a system that works to include members of the beneficiary population in the sorting and distribution of aid.
In-Sight Collaborative has been active since 2016, mostly focusing on advocacy and awareness projects in the US. Their focus is on the promotion of autonomy and dignity in humanitarian crises and teaching donors and active aid organizations how to better involve beneficiaries in decision-making and the planning and implementation of interventions.
RBB and In-Sight Collaborative entered a partnership in December of 2019 when Ruhi and Madi recognized the overlap between their beliefs on dignified aid delivery. The two collaborated on a shoe distribution in February of 2020 and hope to continue to work together while In-Sight Collaborative undergoes the NGO registration process in Greece.
