Digital literacy encompasses the essential skills required to learn, work, and thrive in a society where communication and access to information are predominantly facilitated through digital technology. Possessing digital literacy skills enables individuals to effectively navigate the digital landscape and potentially compete in today’s market.

Through our digital literacy trainings,

  • 200 individuals were trained in digital literacy skills over a 3-month period.
  • Of these, over 80 have secured employment.
  • 5 individuals have successfully created their own jobs.
  • Additionally, 50 participants are now engaged in part-time data collection roles.

These achievements demonstrate the tangible impact of digital literacy training on employment opportunities and economic empowerment.

Through our business coaching initiative, we reached 60 refugee entrepreneurs, resulting in the formation of two business associations—one in Bidibidi and another in the Rhino Camp refugee settlement. These associations now provide small startup business loans to aspiring business owners. Our unique approach involves close collaboration with savings groups (VSLAs) composed of businesspeople. We offer tailored support, especially in digital business management.

Currently, Business Initiative and Development Organization (BIDO) and the Bidibidi Business Association (BBA) actively mentored businesspeople who are now mentors themselves. This initiative holds great potential for empowering refugee entrepreneurs and fostering economic resilience within the community.

Through our community and inter-school debates initiative, we reached 500 individuals.

This program included both inter-secondary and community policing debates. By participating in these activities, young people gained verbal resilience, enabling them to debate effectively and speak up about rights violations and pressing issues the community face. They also developed critical thinking skills, solution-oriented approaches, and leadership abilities through oratory speeches.

Imagine a place where every story is an inspiration to foster resilience, connection, and support, Welcome to the Memory Scroll app, where we believe that every life holds a unique narrative, and every shared experience becomes a source of strength that bind us together. Our app is more than just a platform; it’s a place where refugees, the bereaved, and seekers of refuge can tell their stories. Through pictures, audios, words, and shared moments, we create an archive of stories that surpasses boundaries and connect hearts. This is more than an archive; it’s a community that understands and cares.

Join us in creating this initiative, where every story matters, every voice is heard, and together, we build a legacy of understanding and compassion.
