Integrating refugees through tech and innovation
With the recent migrant crisis impacting Europe and the world on an unprecedented scale, our mission is to contribute to the process of integration of refugees into these communities through innovation and technology. Refugees face a number of tough challenges once their asylum status has been obtained, but one of the most critical and most burdensome problems for European nations medium to longer term will be that of economic integration through job opportunity. Our organization aims to tackle this by: teaching fundamental concepts of computer literacy, web development and programming through interactive methods promoting exchange between students, empowering our participants with professional opportunities, and building a supportive community of individuals passionate about code and engaged in the tech community.
We are growing rapidly, and need some help with growing our online social media presence. We are also working to increase our funding strategy and preparing grant applications.
