Hiring & Training
In 2021, Mastercard joined the Tent Coalition for Afghan Refugees, committing to explore hiring and training opportunities for Afghans in the U.S..
Mastercard committed to expanding the reach of its Mastercard Aid Network, humanitarian prepaid, and remittance services, to 2 million aid recipients; to mobilize and partner with other private and public sector organizations to build “smart communities” that seek to integrate refugee populations; to assist refugee-serving organizations with information safety and security workshops and guidance; and to convene a multisector working session to determine how refugees can more easily access financial services.
Additionally, Mastercard is leveraging its products and solutions to help humanitarian and development organizations better understand the needs of refugees in Latin America. Mastercard and the Inter-American Development Bank committed to piloting an effort that will assess the water and sanitation needs of 1,000 refugees and members of their host community in La Guajira, Colombia. The knowledge collected will help scale the program to other markets in Latin America that are hosting large numbers of refugees.
