About Us

Attention to Detail

Millions of people have been displaced from their homes due to conflicts and natural disasters. In the majority of these cases, these displaced people have missed out on their education, meaning that when they are finally relocated, they lack the necessary skills to survive in the modern world. An understanding of code and tech applications, however basic, will make an enormous difference to potential employers, or their ability to start their own businesses. Here at RefuGeek, we believe that giving them a chance to learn these basic skills will increase their chances of employment and opportunities in life.
