Working with communities and technology to support refugees into higher education.

Support us

Why we exist

Only 1% of eligible refugees have access to higher education, compared to 36% of global youth. In the Middle East, this means that 91,000 young people are missing out on higher education.

This limits their potential to become self reliant, integrate and contribute in their host communities and to help reconstruct their country when they return home.

Losing your home shouldn’t mean losing your ability to learn and make the world a better place.
