The latest figures reported by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) now puts the world’s displaced population at a post-war record of 60 million, of whom 20 million are stranded outside their own countries. The Techfugees initiative has proven that technical innovation can be applied to the refugee situation and it can make a difference. Silicon Valley has the brainpower and skill set to create real impact for millions of people around the world. You can make a difference. So join Techfugees for an afternoon/evening/day to learn more about the cause and get involved.
