Many refugees in Lebanon are skilled professionals in one field or the other, and yet, they still have to rely on humanitarian aid. An international organization by the name of Talent Beyond Boundaries thinks that’s crazy (we do too), which is why they created a platform that connects refugees with jobs that match their qualifications. Right now, many of the world’s 25 million-plus refugees are restricted from working in their host countries, no matter what experience they might have. It’s also very difficult to move somewhere else through traditional humanitarian resettlement programs; fewer than 1 percent of refugees have this opportunity. Talent Beyond Boundaries is addressing this problem by creating a detailed database of the skills of more than 11,000 refugees. Through this data, companies who need new talent and want to help refugees can find workers that match their needs. The organization expects to help around 20 people move to Canada from Jordan and Lebanon through the pilot running this year, and perhaps as many as 50 people. They’re also working with the UN Refugee Agency to develop alternative pathways for migration that other organizations can also use.
