Bitae featured in Brookings: “A4Ed [Bitae], their innovative tech initiative, leverages mobile and blockchain technology to provide a platform to track, store and verify refugees’ non-formal learning achievements and skill development, creating a “digital backpack” of classes, workshops, internships, and skills so that refugees can present these credentials to higher educational institutions, scholarship committees, employers, etc. The initiative just won SIPA’s Dean’s Challenge and its leaders are exploring application in the field with UNICEF, UNHCR, and others.”
