Bridging the gap in accessibility to career development education

According to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), only 3% of refugees are enrolled in higher education compared to a global enrollment of 37%; 24% in secondary school – compared to a global enrollment of 84%-; and 63% in primary school – compared to a global enrollment of 91%-. HireChance’s core mission is to breach the whopping gap in access to education in the refugee population around the world by providing full funded certified courses, nano-degrees, and degrees in languages and tech. By harnessing the talent and potential of refugees, their integration into their host communities becomes a less challenging endeavor. Skills in language and tech give them a higher chance at thriving in their host communities by having formal labor market access (LMA).
