Giving Compass’ Take:
• As technology, business, finance, and global supply chains begin to emerge, it presents an opportunity for private and public partnerships to come together and connect refugees to opportunities that otherwise would not have possible.
• Can this same impact be applied to other global crisis issues?
• Here’s another example of the refugee crisis and how we can respond.
There are more than 65 million people identified by United Nations Refugee Agency as being forcibly displaced and more than 22.5 million of those are refugees. At this moment in time, more people have been forced to flee their homes by conflict and crisis than at any time since World War II. Refugees are made up of many different walks of life and backgrounds and represent a population who seek a chance to rebuild their lives in the face of devastating circumstances.
Like any other global crisis, in any sector, the private sector must play a major role in solving the issue. Below are a few brands and companies using their talents and creative minds to help alleviate this global crisis through business:
- SITTI Soap
- 734 Coffee
- The Orenda Tribe
