Mitigating low employment through remote work
Syrian refugees living in Azraq Camp have very few opportunities to earn income. Mainly reliant on cash assistance provided by UNHCR and the few, short-term, incentive-based volunteering opportunities with NGOs in the camp. Syrian refugees living in Azraq Camp commonly report utilizing stress-level coping strategies, such as reducing their expenditure on food or buying food on credit (UNHCR, 2022).
This projects seeks to improve refugees chances of accessing work by facilitating connections between interested and capable refugees and remote work through digital platforms. This approach is an innovative way to support income generation for refugees in the camp, where markets and job opportunities are extremely limited.
