  1. This is wonderful to see! I attended the ID2020 council at the UN in NYC this past May regarding technology, blockchain, and how we can use that to provide a digital identity to all the people who don’t have one today, including all the refugees, truly inspirational. Has anyone reached out to contacts in Jordan regarding the Crowdfunding? Maybe HRH Queen Rania’s Jorden Education Initiative, Jordan’s Ministry of IT/Comms, etc…? I’m sure there could be some interest in the project from key contacts and organizations in Jordan itself? Good luck, all the best! #BeTheChange

    1. Aurelia thank you for the input! We are absolutely working with local organizations and actors in Jordan, and have been reaching out throughout our campaign to contact more. We will definitely make sure HRH Queen Rania’s JEI is on the list!

      Best,

      Vicky

  2. It’s so inspiring article! I also learn how to create my own apps. There is a course on Udemy, where you can master some basic skills, but I got stuck, because had no motivation to carry on my learning. But now I see, how useful applications can be! So, I already have an idea about what application would be useful for others.
