Technology has changed the world in unbelievable ways and we know that it has the power to improve the lives of men, women and children who have been displaced from their homes.
Our mission is to enable and coordinate the tech community’s response to improving the lives of refugees through funding projects that provide access to technology, education, identity, health and social inclusion.
We need your help to raise £100,000 to support refugees in need around the world.
