Hiring & Training
In 2021, HP joined the Tent Coalition for Afghan Refugees, committing to explore hiring and training opportunities for Afghans in the U.S..
HP committed to establishing six HP Learning Studios in Lebanon and Jordan to engage refugee youth in developing skills and help to give refugee students access to the latest education technology while providing adults the opportunity for employment re-skilling.
HP also committed to piloting the HP School Cloud, a new technology which brings open education resources to rural and underserved communities, to improve education outcomes for refugees in Uganda. HP and its partners, including Education Cannot Wait, UNHCR and Learning Equality, will start in 3 schools. Based on the success of the pilot, the commitment may expand to 15 schools in Uganda, impacting approximately 5,000 children, and be scaled to other countries.
HP committed to expanding the HP Learning Initiative for Entrepreneurs (HP LIFE) with additional free online courses and curated content to help refugees develop essential business and IT skills. In addition, HP is working with partners to increase access to technology and improve learning outcomes in refugee-hosting countries such as Malawi.
