Since most refugees traveling to Europe relied on smartphones for GPS to navigate and to stay in touch with their families back home, Taylor wondered how she could create an app that enabled them to find the services they might need wherever they were on their journey, and whatever their legal status. “I spoke to many large NGOs and aid organizations to see if the app I had in mind would be helpful, and their answer was a resounding yes. So my team and I created the app – Refugee Aid or RefAid RefAid – over a weekend.”
