Firms can help increase food security

Companies that can offer refugees digital work opportunities are being urged to sign up to a World Food Programme (WFP) initiative.

The Tech for Food project puts a particular emphasis on giving Syrian refugee women and young people in the Middle East the chance to earn money. By improving their digital skills, location doesn’t need to be a barrier to employment. Participants in the programme undertake vocational courses – at various levels – in anything from Microsoft Office to 3D modelling software. WFP is partnering with private firms to help match the refugees to online positions. This provides financial freedom and a path away from food insecurity.

Any business that wants to get involved should email global.innovation@wfp.org
