The Mohajer App was awarded a special jury prize at the Techfugees Summit: read TechCrunch's report - here.
This week I had the great privilege and challenge of working with content and messaging in a new context: presenting the Mohajer App at the Techfugees Summit in Paris as part of the 'Global Challenges' competition. I worked with the team to create a presentation, which I then delivered to the panel of judges. Mohajer is the app for Afghan refugees and migrants in Iran: the amazing team of Iranians and Afghans behind this project were not able to present the Project, for security and travel reasons.
I’ve been linked to this Project since its beginnings, when I was working in the Calais camp, and I and one of the team started discussions and formal scoping with Afghan and Iranian refugees about information and empowerment. The Calais camp was demolished shortly afterwards, but the idea was adapted and and applied to a new context.
