Tech for Food Wins Big at the MIT ‘Innovate for Refugees’ Awards Ceremony in Amman

The World Food Programme (WFP)’s Tech for Food was one of the 5 winners of the ‘Innovate for Refugees,’ competition organised by the MIT Enterprise Forum for the Pan Arab region. Tech for Food empowers vulnerable communities in Iraq and Lebanon, with a special focus on youth and women by providing them with the digital skills that they need to find remote work with global tech companies over the internet. This gives them an opportunity for empowerment towards a brighter future. The programme has impacted the lives of 3,000 people and aims to reach 100,000 people over the next 5 years. More.
