Techfugees in Calais

Since the French authorities plan to demolish “The Jungle” (the informal refugee camp near Calais, France) as of October 24th, Techfugees is planning a visit there to meet refugees and NGOs. The Techfugees team will be in Calais from 21st until 22nd.

Our purpose will be the fact-find, and evaluate what technology can assist any refugees there in the near and long term future, especially regarding the needs of women and children.
We are calling on our community to follow us on Twitter and Facebook during our visit.

We are calling on NGOs working on the ground to contact us so we can meet with you as part of our research. Please email us on
