🇫🇷 Techfugees France 🇫🇷
The Techfugees' chapter in France started in 2016. It brings together a group of active and engaged members from the French associative, tech and entrepreneurial communities all looking for solutions to improve the lives of refugees in France.
We connect a diverse pool of organisations and individuals united towards a similar goal: using technology to solve challenges faced by refugees. Through networking events, meetups and hackathons, we connect like minded individuals.
We support refugees & organisations looking to access the resources they need from the tech & entrepreneurial communities ; and support the Techfugees Global Team in implementing the TF4Women Fellowship programme in France.
We share our insights with a wider community (conferences & think-tanks) to inform on most pressing issues and needs on the ground. This paves the way for a better understanding & more relevant tech solutions.
