Less Bureaucracy & More Financial Independence

The Turkish Government, upon a work-permit request from employers, will be able to issue tamper-proof digital credentials that attest to a refugees' right to work. Ana removes the bureaucratic, costly and paper-based intermediary and establishes a secure communication channel for this digital credential exchange.

The goal is to optimise the process of issuing documentation for refugees that enhances their opportunities of becoming financial independent.

The project was initiated by the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the United Nations Development Programme within the first Sustainable Development Goals Impact Accelerator (SDGia).
