Refugees in Malawi finding hope through resilience!

As refugees are among the most vulnerable people, we wholeheartedly support programs that enable them to regain identity, independence and other basic rights. 

We want to update you on one such program – the Digital Inclusion program in Malawi. It aims to teach digital skills to refugees to enhance their opportunities to find work in digital platforms. 

Australian Jesuit, Fr David Holdcroft SJ, the Professional and Post-Secondary Education Specialist at Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) International is one of the founders of this program.  He is thrilled that the first cohort of students are now all working and competing with the best in the world. He adds “they are no longer refugees when they are doing that!”

In this three-minute video, you can hear more about the resilience of the refugees and the success of this program.
