EXPLAIN YOUR IDEA

Through feedbacks obtained on the idea about Reevo and based on the already existing Facebook for Africans and Syrians refugees in Egypt (see the "Inspired by" section), this idea intends to propose a one stop shop for refugees connect with working/training opportunities. Another inspiration came from a comment on Reevo's idea, the website for9a.com/en.

WHO BENEFITS?

The idea benefits Africans and Refugees in Egypt on job searching, as well as on inform them about studying and training opportunities. The core idea is to build a brigde where refugees can get informed about how to work, study, get into Egyptian society.

PROTOTYPE

How could we imagine a platform for refugees in Egypt find all the relevant information regarded to work, study, training and skills development?

FEEDBACK
