Refugee empowerment
One Digital World empowers refugees and asylum seekers worldwide by using technology to connect them with resources essential to their integration and self-reliance.
Refugees struggle to integrate after relocation

By the end of 2019, 79.5 million individuals were forcibly displaced worldwide as a result of persecution, conflict, violence or human rights violations. That was an increase of 8.7 million people over the previous year, and the world's forcibly displaced population remained at a record high.

Once refugees and asylum seekers are resettled, barriers prevent access to the workforce and community integration. Refugees children are 5 times more likely to be out of school. Seventy-six (76) percent of refugee adolescents were not in secondary school. Only 3% of refugees enroll in college or university.  Across the world, enrollment in college or university stands at 37%.

Our Solution: 
Digital Training

One Digital World connects refugees worldwide with education that is essential to their integration.


We do that by building computer labs in refugee camps and shelters where we provide employable skills training, certifications, and a virtual support network.


By gaining computer and internet literacy, conversational english and secondary education students are empowered to join the workforce and be self-sufficient, in a new country and culture upon resettlement.

Key Outcomes

Upon completion of One Digital World's  computer lab course, graduates earn the following:


Digital literacy certificates from Microsoft and typing certificates measuring speed and accuracy
