Izela commented on Bridging Cultures; Bridging Communities

Perhaps the biggest barrier for refugees is the fact that they are stigmatised in the host country, usually because of the citizen's fear and ignorance because they do not understand the difference in cultures. Communication, which i think your prototype addresses well, helps to iron out differences and forge an understanding between cultures and fosters mutual development.
Another strength of your prototype is the fact that it is informed by actual lifestyle of the beneficiaries. I believe this lends it relevance and flexibility. Well done Stella and good luck.
