Tech for Inclusivity
As a result of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, as well as COVID-19, digital skills are now a prerequisite for almost all jobs. With a grant from Google.org, SPARK and its local partners will boost the digital skills of refugee and host community youth in Lebanon, Iraq and the Palestinian territories.
Alongside our partners, SPARK delivers digital skills training (covering online presence management, productivity suites and their use in business, online/remote work tools and applications, and data analysis and management) for underserved youth directly linked to digital job opportunities for youth in refugee and vulnerable host communities in Lebanon, Iraq and Palestinian Territories.
A 2-month roadshow supports the economic livelihoods of entrepreneurs from refugee and vulnerable host communities by empowering them on their entrepreneurial journey through coaching, mentoring and business advisory. Plus, SPARK will launch a digital networking platform to leverage the outreach and promote continuous engagement for entrepreneurs and university alumni from the refugee communities across the three countries.
