Blockchain for refugees

Georgetown University

Research and Action

In collaboration with the prestigious Executive MBA program at Georgetown University, we are working on a blockchain application for a social action project. GU students are conducting research with the global charity Save the Children to create a viable business model for humanitarian aid using cutting edge technology.

 

Humanitarian tool

Save the Children does whatever it takes to ensure refugee children grow up healthy, educated and safe.

They work nonstop supporting refugee girls and boys, helping them survive, and thrive. Whether in camps, on the move or in host communities, STC caring staff helps refugee children from Syria, South Sudan, Burundi and other countries marred by violence and persecution. How can blockchain technologies help make their work easier?

 

 

Building blocks

As part of its Building Blocks pilot, WFP is trialing blockchain and biometric applications as a means of making cash transfers more efficient, transparent and secure. But more advanced blockchain applications can be used for much more than allocating aid in a secure and transparent way, and we are leading the development of a pilot program for that purpose.
