Refugees often live in displacement for decades. Therefore, it is critical to enable them to become self-reliant – in a way that benefits both refugees and host communities. The GIZ asks the question: How to strengthen business exchange between refugees and host communities? We are launching a call for solutions – the Solution Challenge – from September 1rst until October 31st, 2018. We are looking for innovative business models, IT projects, new services or products - any solution that creates business opportunities for refugees and host communities. NGOs, private individuals, companies, entrepreneurs and creative minds all over the world are invited to submit their solutions. Join us in tackling the SDGs and provide a better future for both refugees and host communities!
