Techfugees partners with Redi School to organise a hackathon at the end of April – Starting Friday 20th until Sunday the 22nd of April – in Berlin with their newly graduated students!

Background about Redi 
ReDI is a non-profit refugee tech school aimed at accelerating refugee integration into the job market by teaching market relevant IT skills. We use tech to connect human potential and opportunity with dignity & humility.
More than 400 refugees and asylum seekers have already participated in at least one 3-month course at ReDI. More than 200 volunteers from the IT- and startup sector have supported our students to improve their IT-skills and find a job in Germany.

We would like to bring together the ReDI community with our external partners and shareholders to build solutions that will improve the lives of refugees and internationally displaced people.

Challenges

The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) will provide a number of real-life challenges that they are working on.
We will face the challenge of our Design Thinking Workshop again on how to connect refugees with companies
Participants can also bring their own ideas to work on (please send a short description to Manuel (manuel@redi-school.org) until Wednesday, April 18, 19:00).
