3 Sided Cube were approached by UNHCR (The UN Refugee Agency) as they wanted to develop a new innovative technology solution that facilitates meaningful connections that span countries and cultures to support the next generation of refugee students.
Higher education transforms the lives of those who have access to it and has a long-lasting positive impact on whole communities. Only 3% of young refugees are currently enrolled in some form of higher education. Without education, displaced communities are deprived of the leadership that others take for granted. On a personal level, it is the surest road to recovering a sense of purpose and dignity after the trauma of displacement.
UNHCR wanted Connecting Worlds Mentor to utilise secure messaging to facilitate authentic, safe conversations between supporters and refugees in order to make it possible for them to pursue their education and transform not only their own lives but of the communities around them. As they are a global organisation dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights, and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities, and stateless people, they were after a digital solution with a safe and robust platform to amplify its amazing work.
We immediately set to work to deliver them just the solution.
