What is it about?

Konexio advances socio-economic inclusion for society’s most vulnerable groups by empowering refugees, migrants, and disadvantaged youth with employable digital skills.  Lack of digital skills causes both social isolation and difficulty securing income, so vulnerable groups on the losing end of the “digital divide” are increasingly left out of a rapidly digitizing society. 


In 2016, Konexio launched programs in Paris’ immigrant-dense neighborhoods, and in 2019 launched a pilot program in the Dzaleka refugee camp in Malawi. By bridging the digital divide, Konexio fights unemployment and integrates vulnerable groups into society.
