What We Do

We build the framework in which refugees and supporters can connect to create strong, inclusive local communities. We want to facilitate communication and cooperation among the community members to jointly create solutions to the challenges we face. Participatory and independent, Josoor shall unite instead of divide and contribute to the inclusion of refugees in their new homes.

Answers and Connect are the first of several tools to solve the challenges of refugees & locals and prove that this crisis is full of opportunities!
