Hey, I started building up on our mission with RefugeesWork so we can get the momentum and more people on board for when the things are ready. And then when we have grants and new app and stuff we can just rebrand it or we maybe connect the apps and RefugeesWork can serve as a marketplace for the beginning or whatever we will come up to... Just to use the social media and the work that was already done in this direction...

Hi. I think it is a good idea. It will help us test the market and see if Refugees are interested and what will be their responses.
Once WASL is ready we can think about the rebrand / redirecting whatever.
The question now is how to track the refugee’s appetite for starting up a business on RefugeesWork?

I came across endeva project few weeks ago and I think they could be a very good partner.
Do you know if they will provide funding also to the entrepreneurs?

i don't know. was checking the site yesterday but couldn't find anything so i sent them an email that we with refugeeswork would be happy if they could share the listing they are creating with us... No response so far.
will try here with RefugeesWork to also check how many newcomers are interested in staring their company. Also have to go to Refugio and see what is the story behind Malakeh, was this an isolated case or they have some strategy of how to help more of them build themselves as entrepreneurs...
