What is Azadi?

The Azadi Project provides digital economy job skills to refugee women by teaching them technical expertise such as multimedia communications and storytelling at refugee shelters. After the workshop, Azadi connects its participants to local organizations for internships and employment. Azadi means freedom or liberation in Hindi, Urdu and Farsi. The Azadi Project is based on the principles of freedom, integration and dignity. By offering digital skills, we create opportunities for female refugees that allow them to pursue educational or employment opportunities that contribute to their future livelihoods beyond the borders where they come from and places where they currently reside. Join the #Azadi movement.



“It’s important that you as the people who are affected, as the actual refugees, are empowered yourself. I really welcome this initiative started by The Azadi Project.”

Melissa Fleming, UNHCR Chief Spokesperson
