Hey guys! Quick update! We are currently working on creating a Live Session for refugees organizations from Serbia & Bosnia. Currently, we managed to get one positive answer from one of the organizations (Refugees Aid Serbia) and we are going to start looking for tech solutions that would benefit them. Here is a one-pager on the challenges that RAS is facing right now. :) @Leendert de Bell @Simona Goia @Zsolt Bugarszki
Great job @Andreea-Raluca Radulescu and @Eva Radescu. I hope that @Simona Goia also sees this :)
Came here to give everyone an update on our project! We are currently researching tech solutions that could be implemented in Serbia and Bosnia in order to help refugees and NGOs, as well as contacting the organizations we found for a possible contribution to the Data Hub platform.
I would say that everything is going as smoothly as possible and we are having a great time working for this cause. 😊
Additionally, here is the Excel where we are going to keep track of the organizations, contacts, main issues, and tech solutions:
Just to keep everyone updated , my team and I are currently focusing our research on Serbia and the border between Croatia and Bosnia. We have also agreed on some key topics according to the most important news regarding refugees in those areas like family reunification , acces to information and police brutality along with some tech solutions to tackle these problems. We are so excited to be part of this programe , we learned a lot in the last few weeks and want to thank everyone who made this possible. Here is also an example of a one pager of what we've been working on.
Awesome project idea!!
