At YINNOH scholars are matched with mentors and keep testing ideas and making mistakes until they become social change-makers and living with their own social ventures created thus creating their own jobs and solving the shared pain in their communities.
YINNOH we are envisioning creating a world where refugees and disadvantaged youths are self-actualized and economic actors who fully contribute to the communities, they live in.
