UNHCR and LIGHTest team up to provide refugees with new digital solutions for eduction

LIGHTest and UNHCR have joined forces to work on offering digital solutions to problem faced by refugees. We have identified one use case for the LIGHTest cross-domain trust infrastructure that could be applied in the UNHCR DAFI programme for education, a scholarship program for refugees who want to go to university. The trust infrastructure will help with the verification and translation of important documents for the application process in an Academic or University setting. The trust infrastructure will help with the verification and acceptance of important documents for the application process in an Academic or University setting. We will soon start working on defining the prototype of a UNHCR trust scheme and by the end of August 2019, we would like to have a LIGHTest – UNHCR demonstrator and a set-up a pilot project.
