Refugees are often given information that is untranslated or simply confusing. We seek to alleviate this added stress for refugees looking for opportunities in higher education. Gajang provides customized information about universities, vocational programs, and apprenticeships to refugees and guide them through the complicated application process through an interactive multimedia interface.
Gajang contains helpful resources and a customized search engine for tertiary education opportunities in a refugee’s country of resettlement. Our site will match resettled refugees with tertiary education programs based on their needs and qualifications, arming them with the necessary tools to continue their education.
Gajang is currently in its beta phase, initially focusing only on opportunities for refugees resettling in Germany.
Gajang was founded by a team of five global leaders from the WISE Learner’s Voice program, funded by the Qatar Foundation. Through intensive learning sessions about global migration and education, the team behind Gajang is committed to addressing the gap refugees face in pursuing tertiary education. We understand that access to higher education for displaced people is a critical issue that requires more attention.
