The Innovation Hub is a space for creativity & collaboration where human-centered design and community-based solutions transform lives across the globe.
Computer Training. Computer Literacy is the key for refugees to access opportunities. YARID's computer training center offers classes in computer operating systems, Microsoft Office, mobile technology, and social media (Twitter & Facebook).
Social Media. There is a big gap in refugee's access to the internet and the resources available within. YARID's main office hosts 10 computer stations to offer refugees access to the world wide web. Training in Facebook, Twitter, blogging, and other social media platforms enable beneficiaries to expand their network, reconnect with family and friends, and share their stories.
Innovation. When the community has a space to gather and connect, creativity happens. At YARID's Innovation Hub, located at our main office, creative solutions to the community's problems arise from within the community. YARID seeks to utilize a human-centered design approach. Refugee community members, other community-based organizations, and international NGOs use the Hub as a space to connect, collaborate, and create.
