We have a story to tell

Mohamed

When Mohamed, a talented hairdresser and make-up artist, was 22 years old he went on an adventures trip for several days. He walked, he took the boat and travelled by train. Mohamed was not alone. It was a time when many of his fellow countrymen travelled. Mohamed reached his destination – a new world with nobody who would speak his language.

It was Sweden in June 2015 when the hairdresser and make-up artist Mohamed arrived from Syria fleeing the war and the fear of being forced into the army. After 6 months, he now knows that his adventure isn’t over.

Language, permits, prejudices, accommodation & work are just a few of the adventures he goes through. From February 5-7, Mohamed will tackle many of his challenges at the RefugeeACT Hackathon. Join him and develop an IT solution to help him and many other refugees for an easier and quicker integration.

Solution oriented

After February 7th, this list will be cut in half. At the RefugeeACT Hackathon, refugees will develop the solutions necessary for their change.
