Great project!
This says it all to me-
"We are building a platform that will give refugees better access to food, water, and necessary supplies, while also empowering entrepreneurs to build and sustain businesses that benefit everyone's lives."
Encouraging women, and the teens that would otherwise sabotage businesses for their own needs seems like a plan for success. The team you have put together seems to cover a lot. Nice!

Love this project! The scaling looks a bit aggressive, but the reach is wonderful. Please look at an Austin, TX based adult education program called Free Minds. It focuses not only on the educational aspect, but also cultural literacy. That component, along with leadership skills for girls, could really make your project great! Keep going!

Brannon Veal wonderful idea! I would also encourage you to reach out to folks in the local architecture community. See for professionals to connect to.
