EMPOWERMENT THROUGH TECHNOLOGY
There are over 79.5 million forcibly displaced people worldwide; this is the largest refugee crisis in modern history, surpassing even World War II. Even though the United States leads the world in refugee resettlement capacity. It still takes an average of 7 years for a refugee to become self-sufficient, causing stress for both those who are resettled and the communities that welcome them.
One Digital World empowers refugees and asylum seekers worldwide by using technology to connect them with education and equipment essential to integration and self-reliance in a new country and culture. We do this by setting up computer labs inside refugee camps and migrant shelters and teaching our curriculum which aligns with UNESCO framework to achieve the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.
Graduates may earn certifications from Typing.com and Microsoft.
