We serve refugees in the Amarillo area by removing the language barriers refugees face, honoring their cultures so they can integrate without sacrificing their heritages, overcoming relational and emotional hurdles to build leaders within their communities, facilitating systemic solutions for long-term issues, and engaging with local churches. Learn more about how these mission objectives get us to our vision of the flourishing of refugee communities.
The Refugee Language Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Amarillo, Texas. Launched in 2017, we became a standalone organization in 2020. Our Executive Director is Dr. Ryan Pennington, a linguist who previously worked with undescribed and unwritten languages in Papua New Guinea. Refugee Language Project (RLP) is funded primarily by monthly recurring donations, alongside generous one-time gifts and strategic grants. Learn more below.
