Disaster Tech Lab has been building wifi networks providing internet access to refugees and NGO's in the many refugee camps across Greece since September 2015. We have worked in over 15 camps and with 16 months of continuous presence on the ground our track record is equaled by very few others.

On January 1st 2017 we transfered the day-to-day management of the networks to a Greek organisation so that we could concentrate on new projects.

One of these projects is an ICT networking training course for refugees.
This 2 week course, scheduled to take place in Oinofyta migrant camp, will teach the participants the basic skills of wireless networking.
The course will be conducted in coorperation with Cambium Networks our equipment sponsor and will be given by experienced trainers.
Succesful participants will receive a certificate of completion outlining the aquired skills.

This course will give them a chance to learn new skills and to increase their chances of employability. Too many refugees are forced to spend their time in the camps being idle which is a cause of a lot of problems.

 We are asking you for your support in this project. While all our personnel are volunteers we still need to cover such costs as course materials, equipment, accommodation etc.

Disaster Tech Lab is an entirely voluntary organisation. We’re based in Ireland but operate worldwide.
Our teams have deployed to Haiti, Philippines, Vanuatu, Nepal, Ecuador, Italyand various disasters in the USA.
