We Teach to Empower.
 

The world is facing the largest refugee crisis since World War II.  As marginalized and disadvantaged persons are persecuted, they are forced to seek shelter in safe countries where they often do not speak the language, have skills to join the labor market or have the support of their friends and family.

 

One Digital World is a humanitarian nonprofit that promotes equality for all lives by providing access to quality education in refugee camps.  Women face additional barriers to access to education and employment and invest more of their income back into their families. Therefore, One Digital World implements courses to empower women and girls and ensure their equal rights.

 

Graduates earn certifications from LinkedIn and Microsoft and are awarded Continuing Education credit from the University of San Diego.
