Young people in the Middle East face an impossible choice: a life of poverty or a life of war. Militias and terror groups prey on this desperation.
The way to end violence is to give young people a better choice…
Provide skills they need to find better work, without leaving home. Create high-demand tech jobs they can do with a smartphone and a signal.
The world has spent billions on war. It doesn’t work.
Invest in something that does: income, opportunity, and jobs for the next generation.
Young people in Iraq have few good ways to earn a steady wage—often with no other choices but poverty or life in a militia.
Create hundreds of tech jobs—for young people with few opportunities, refugees, and people with disabilities—and disrupt the cycle of violence with meaningful work.
