A new digital divide

A divide is emerging between refuges with access to mobile applications and the internet, and those without.

This divide can been seen through low number of mobile solutions developed for refugees in the global south, compared to Europe and the global north, despite the responsibility of many countries in East Africa to host refugee communities from across the region. Without these technology services, refugees in East Africa have more limited access to potentially lifesaving information during their journey and financial, learning and job opportunities once they arrive in host countries.
