Who We Are
URISE stands for U: Ubuntu, R: Restore, I: Inspire, S: Solve, E: Encourage. URISE initiative for Africa is a refugee run Community Based Organisation that guide young refugees to find meaning through life skills, social and economic empowerment. We use technology to train young refugees with relevant ICT skills that they can apply in real life situations to build their social and economic value. We merge the use of technology and peace education to instil the spirit of peace-making to young refugee generation. We believe in the power we have as young refugees to rebuild our broken countries and as well as our refugee communities.
URISE Tech training centre facilitate creativity, innovation, teamwork, collaboration and Trust among young refugees whom we believe are in need of life change. We believe that today’s young refugees are to be at the forefront of social and economic change through strengthening mutual cross-cultural understanding and enhancing collaboration among different communities. We also believe that access to relevant information, backed with relevant infrastructure and services, will not only allow young refugees to improve their quality of life but also upgrade their existing sources of incomes in a sustainable way. Access to information and services like e-fundraising, peace education, education, news, e-refuge learn, etc through infrastructure, will provide refugees in the camp with a solid foundation for social and economic prosperity.
