Techfugees’ 2019 hackathons & events

In 2019, the Techfugees’ local chapters organised about 30 events gathering hundreds of refugee and local techies, social entrepreneurs, designers, students, researchers, humanitarians, corporate representatives or just curious minds!
35 #tech4refugee projects addressing the needs of displaced people in our 5 priority areas of work have been born from these unforgettable moments of networking as well as knowledge and resource sharing.

Here is the review of an active year across the five continents!
