We are proud to be partnering with some of the leading organizations which provide digital skills trainings and livelihoods support in the Middle East
Since 2019 we are partnering with the Roia Foundation to bring online remote job opportunities to conflict-affected people in Turkey and Syria. In Turkey, the Foundation works with asylum-seekers, including people with disabilities and medical doctors. In Syria, annotators come from conflict-affected areas such as Aleppo, Raqqa, and Idlib.
Humans in the Loop is partnering with Roia to support the first Annotation Hub in Syria within the Foundation’s center in Azaz, Aleppo. So far, 183 people have worked on HITL projects, 82 of whom are women.
HITL is partnering with the Preemptive Love Coalition’s WorkWell program in their Tech Hubs in 4 cities in Iraq: Erbil, Duhok, Sulaymaniyah and Mosul. WorkWell’s trainees include conflict-affected locals, internally displaced people and refugees.
We are proud to be supporting WorkWell’s pioneering efforts in Iraq’s first AI Microwork program which gives students an introduction to data labeling and access to some of HITL’s paid projects. To date we have provided paid online tasks to 145 of WorkWell’s trainees, 92 of whom are women.
In 2021 we led a successful pilot and we welcomed aboard our newest partner: BrightPoint. They are an entrepreneurial ecosystem builder based in Kabul with more than 6 years of direct contribution towards a thriving ecosystem for entrepreneurs in Afghanistan.
Together with them, we are working to bring online remote job opportunities to Afghan youth. More than 80% of workers are females, aged between 18 to 25. Many of them are from the rural areas of the country, mostly displaced from conflict zones as Ghazni, Panjshir, Maidan Wardak, Parwan, Herat, and Farah.
