11/5/2015 17:50:14Alexandra Simmonsarlsimmons88@gmail.comI passionately believe that through collaboration and creative thinking as a collective we can find effective solutions to help ease the refugee crisis.

With a background in Anthropology and four years marketing experience, specialising in social media I would like to contribute my skill set to help work to find these solutions. I'm currently based in London and freelancing so have flexibility in the time I can offer.

I very much look forward to hearing fro you,

11/10/2015 11:28:08Shadi A. Razakshadi.razak@gmail.com1. To ease the suffering of refugees (especially children and families)
2. To bring back faith in humanity
3. Utilise technology to help refugees survive and avoid abuse and harassment
4. Cause I'm Syrian and it make my heart bleed when I see what happened to my country and my people
11/10/2015 18:10:21Lizzie Hodgsonlizziehodg01@gmail.comKeen to share ideas, provide support and create meaningful solutions for refugees in need.
11/10/2015 19:08:12Andrew Baronandrew@humanwire.orgYour site came recommended by Natasha Freidus. I have been deeply involved in understanding the issues for years so I may be able to provide advisory support and recently (last week) launched a tech platform for refugees that is unique. Its a way to provide direct, effective, life-long support for refugees one-to-one. The platform removes the charity organization from the middle to establish a direct connection between an individual and refugee. You can see Cheers, Andrew
11/18/2015 14:56:20Jools Stonejoolsstone@gmail.comI would really love to use my skills for something more meaningful for a change! The refugee crisis strikes me as one of the key issues of our time, and one which inevitably suffers through a lack of public understanding, misinformation and general political axe-grinding. As a freelancer, I really miss collaboration. This project seems like the perfect conduit to kill two birds with the one proverbial (Jools!) Stone.

Previous work includes spearheading the social / online presence of We Are Northern Lights, Scotland's first ever community-driven documentary feature film, made by submissions from 121 ordinary people, many of them first time filmmakers, sharing their hopes, dreams and ideas for a better Scotland.

Other relevant projects include Infinite Scotland, a map-based online repository of Scottish cultural sites and places and the Boy and the Bunnet, an educational animated fringe play, book and music album for children, celebrating Scots language and culture

As a freelance writer, my work covers arts, culture, music, travel and education.

Last year I was the third 'Blogger in Residence' for Brighton Museums and the Royal Pavilion, which again involved community work, as well as social media of course.

I would love an opportunity to speak to you in person about my skills, experience, ideas and the difference I could potentially make.

Please visit my portfolio site to get a flavour of my work:

Thanks for reading!

I co-founded the only operating legal aid clinic for refugees in Egypt, which serves and represents (before the UNHCR/US resettlement programs) thousands of Iraqi refugees who fled violence in their country beginning in 2007-2008. Many of those refugees fled Iraq because they were threatened/at extreme risk due to their work with Coalition forces. The current anti-refugee climate (and the House Bill 4038) puts many of my clinic's refugee cases at risk of completely stalling out and leaving these families in excruciating limbo, for possibly years--this can't be, for so so many reasons. I now live in Washington, DC, where I work on issues related to atrocity prevention and US policy, but stay in regular contact with the clinic in Egypt. In DC, I started a working group of concerned former refugee provider professionals, digital activists, policy folk, and journalists. We are interested in linking up with others working on this issue, especially those with digital and video editing experience, but not exclusively. We also want to listen and hear what others are doing as well.
12/1/2015 16:30:38Lilylilyworth@gmail.comHello, just spotted your ad on Wired Sussex. Like so many people I want to do what I can to help.

I'm presently a full-stack web developer (~13 years tech indusry experience) doing mostly contract work nowadays. I'd be really keen on volunteering in any way I can. I am finishing off a contract Dec 17th, and have yet to confirm a new contract for the New Year, but ideally, I would like to be able to work the contract 4 days a week, and contribute 1 day a work to a cause such as this, or something similar.

I live in central Brighton for what it's worth. It would be great to have a discussion with someone about this if at all possible?

I've been researching a lot about the refugee crises and believe technology can a huge role in solving this problem. Being in India, I only get all the updates through google/ blogs and I feel there is a divide in reaching out to the refugees and understanding their life and needs to come up with a solution.

To talk about me, when I was in college my app was selected as one of top 14 student apps in the world and was invited to present the same at Mobile World Congress 2014. Later that year, I created a product which won the Sequoia hackathon in Bangalore, India. I'm also a scholarship winner at China - Europe International Business School.
12/11/2015 8:32:39Danica M Jurisicdmj.visual@gmail.comRefugee crisis is certainly bringing many issues that can't be ignored. I have to admit that I am personally and emotionally involved due to my own past and experience of a war refugee. I have a waist experience on a life in refuge, I have been engaged in very problematic matters involving integration and education of a persons with refugee status and I would share my knowledge within your team. I have two masters, over ten years of experience in cultural management, art and cinematography, I've started from a position of underage refugee without family, documents, incomes. I would like to help your community, to your project and above all to people who's destiny is so much like mine.

12/20/2015 11:07:48sybille kambecksk@janefire.dehi there, my name is sybille, i am a communication and strategy designer from germany.

in spring 2015 i started the initiative "" with a small number of qualified profesisonals which is now (apping as "") one of a million apps for refugees whose number increased rapidly in germany during 2015.

i think the idea - to tidy up the internet so people in need of information can actually find something on a clear platform - has created a new "level" of desaster in the net, as you don't know any more in which platform/app to look for help.

i saw your collecting (= level one) platform to all those paltforms/apps (= level two). in my system those collect the single initiatives (level three). this is sort of my point: to build a highly educated system which is easy to use, dynamic and logic.

i would like to contribute to a working and intuitive system of finding help when you are a visitor on a (your?) level one platform. my team doesn't seem to like the vision of connecting all available data under one roof and while doing so letting go of their own work and importance. if you are interested in my and maybe also some team members' contribution as designers and strategists, please contact me, i would be glad to do something beyond the team i can reach.

have a good sunday and christmas time,
sybille (kiel, germany)

My main fields of expertise are strategy, human centred design and sociology. I'd love to join as I am already leading 2 projects on the refugees crises, both on international level. The projects are called:

-- First Contact: crowdsourcing information on key locations related to the crises, with a special focus on 1) trustworthiness of information and 2) cyber security and identity protection

-- Flythegap: the platform allows to co-create projects and solutions between organisations and their community. We're re-dedicating the platform to the coordination of location aiming to integrate refugees.

I'm extremely interested in the assessment that you're running, I'd love to contribute by mentoring and of course by sharing the information and database of information and projects I've been collecting till now.

Looking forward to hearing from you

12/21/2015 14:54:19Anupma Sudanupmas@gmail.comI am a graduate student at the London School of Economics in the International Development and Humanitarian Emergencies program.

I am writing my dissertation on how technology is being used to support refugees. I am looking at different apps/websites that directly target refugees and help them assimilate in developed countries.

I am connecting with creators of digital services that are being used by refugees as well as refugee organisations. Not much research has been done in this considering it is a new space and I would love to connect with all working in this arena and send out a short questionnaire to get more information about mission and impact.
I also plan to work with a couple organisations and do field research in Germany and the UK over the next few months to collect more data.
12/21/2015 16:17:33Gerru Kloppersgkloppers@gmail.comHallo, I am a South African that has been living in Berlin the last four years. Having traveled to several countries on most continents including the Middle East, I often relied on the kindness of locals, and I feel I am in a good situation to give back.

For the last year I have been studying Data Analysis from home and the last few months I have been looking to join a project where I could develop my skills, gain some experience and do some social good. I have also done some volunteer work (donations and sorting clothes) at Refugee Asylums in my neighbourhood and therefor focusingon trying to find a Refugee related project, but it has been difficult and I have felt that there is a big need for a system such as this project is trying to achieve.

Disciplines that I can contribute to:
Data Cleaning
Data Analysis
Creating reports/graphs/statistics
User Testing

Disciplines that I can assist with/willing to learn:
Architecture (especially data related)
Human-Centered Design

depending on what is required with Ethnography & User Research, I could also assist as I have 3 (soon to be 4) Asylums in my area.

After the holidays I would be able to commit 5-10 hours a week.

Kind Regards,

Gerru Kloppers

12/23/2015 12:04:44Kai Brouwerthegotokai@gmail.comI'd like to join because I also feel a strong need to help the refugees. I hear terrible stories about their situation and want to do something about it. I'm co-founder of a little startup called Funbase (, where we empower young adults to reconnect with their inner child and let them indulge in play. So it felt awesome to help out with a project to give refugee children a space to play—in order to start their healing process. We made this website ( and work closely together with the guy behind it (Richard Garcia). Our network isn't that big, so we'd like to connect with people/groups like this. Help each other so we can have a bigger impact.

1/6/2016 14:25:02Fabianfabian.klenk@useeds.deCurrently I am organizing a teamevent for our UX Design and Strategy firm in Berlin that will support refugee initiatives (e.g. Metabrain database). By doing this, I connect with quite a few interesting people here in Berlin. Also, a few weeks ago I was taking part in a meetup here, where they spoke about how to implement a mentoring program. Additionally, one year ago I took over managerial responsibility for 4 other UX Research colleagues. And I would like to improve my skills there, so taking part in your academy as a mentor for other refugee-designers sound like a fantastic task, where I would like to contribute some time to.
So let's discuss. All the best!

I'm a newcomer to Berlin (2 years now) and the on-the-ground situation makes this my top social good priority. I see this not only as the right thing to do morally, but quite possibly the most fulfilling use of my skills and personal history (Russian-Jewish refugee raised in San Francisco Bay Area). Unfortunately right now I don't have bandwidth due to working fulltime+ in a new venture, but keeping track of people and projects is very important to me. I think that the SF talent pool hasn't been properly tapped yet, and absolutely should be. There are so many people doing amazing things, I know some of them in Berlin, and the best use out of me right now is connecting people.

I started the civilian assistance group Tempelhof Hilft which coordinates volunteers in Berlin-Tempelhof. We mainly focus on Berlin Tempelhof airport which currently houses 2000 refugees, previously had close to 4000 guests and potentially can host up to 8000 (which we are fighting against). We are currently looking for aid transports travelling to the Balkan route who can pick up donations such as snow suits and rain gear which we dont have use for in Berlin. I have a vast network of volunteers and groups and am an information exchange for many supporters.
Further we are in constant need of shoes, underwear, prams and buggies as well as men's clothes in small sizes. For more information visit our group at or contact me directly. Since I'm already very active, I can't commit weekly hours , yet I can offer my network to source donations for the crisis areas and work on a project by project basis.

I am grew up in Colombia and experienced very similar circumstances. This understanding gives me key insights that others don't have about leaving everything behind for a safer environment. I understand the difficulties of integration. The difficulties in learning new systems. How to make the most of those systems to then go beyond survival, to thrive and build a life that I only dreamed of (well I am still working on it!). When the refugee crisis began, I knew in my gut that I was meant to help, so I packed my bags one month ago, left California and came to Amsterdam, where I hope to stay for a long time.

I travelled to Greece in April 2016 and worked in Idomeni and Nea Kavala - there I was able to see firsthand the needs, and also the power of data to help refugees in Europe (I coordinated a census of the residents of Nea Kavala, and distributed the results to NGOs working there). I have been seeking a way to continue this work, now that I am back home.

I think we should all be doing what we can to contribute to aiding refugees. The issue is important to me particularly because I have close ties in Greece and have seen how serious the crisis is firsthand. I think that my technical skill set is the most value I have to offer in this effort but I am unsure where to start and am eager to work with Prosper in light of this.

I am aware of the scale of the refugee crisis and it really pains me. I began to dig deeply into the topic when I worked on an art exhibition with an artist who examined the civil war in Syria. This was late 2015, the pace at which things have worsened has increased dramatically. I want to help in a meaningful way!
