When Anne Kjaer Riechert observed an influx of Syrian refugees in Berlin, she saw an opportunity instead of a problem.

 

“Currently, there are 43,000 open jobs in IT in Germany,” the Danish entrepreneur, who resides in Germany, told Forbes.

 

The refugee situation worldwide is one of great conflict, and what better way to integrate refugees into migrant populations than to give them a job. Riechert’s school, the ReDI School of Digital Integration, prepares refugees to fill technical positions, allowing them to become apart of the country’s economic fabric.

 

ReDi is a well-rounded educational instituoin, offering coding classes on CSS and HTML as well as entrepreneurship and business management skills.
