HOMEWARD

An identity management system and intelligent resettlement platform easing the future of migration 

by accelerating the future of work

In the last half century, there have been 46 major world incidents resulting in the displacement of more than 151 million people. Less than 3 mission of these refugees are resettled within the year of their displacement. This is an unacceptable humanitarian crisis.

2017 BY THE NUMBERS

68.5 million people forcibly displaced 

by conflict and/or persecution

 

9 out of 10 refugees remain in their 

region of origin

 

44,400 new displacements every day

 

52% of refugees are children below 18 years of age

 

70,000 new stateless children are born every year in the 20 countries hosting the world’s largest stateless populations

 

102,800 people were globally resettled (total), a 54% decline from 2016

WHAT IS HOMEWARD?

Homeward is an identity management system and intelligent resettlement platform for displaced populations.

 

Our identity system is multi-layered, compiling physical and behavioural biometric data, employability potential and socio-cultural preferences data, geospatiotemporal data, and a blockchain-enabled public key infrastructure to form a unique, self-managed digital ID for each claimant.

 

Homeward then matches applicants to cities most conducive to their successful and holistic integration, identifies alternative migration pathways for them, and connects them to an ecosystem of public and private sector partners that provide early access to services and support, including resettlement support, remote training and education programs, employment opportunities, banking and creditability, and more.

KEY ISSUES IN GLOBAL RESETTLEMENT

An overwhelming concentration of claims in sanctuary cities

A broken system for handling humanitarian cases

Security and data privacy

Identity and document verification and their chains of custody

A lack of global agency interoperability

An incomplete assessment of refugee integration factors

Refugee economic dependency; invalid/unknown 

experience and education

Public opinion fuelled by burden narratives

HOW HOMEWARD WORKS

POTENTIAL

IDENTIFYING SOMEONE'S INVISIBLE PROFILE

In addition to their present circumstances, displaced persons face an added barrier: they are unable to present themselves as value-add to destination countries. The bulk of their application is identity, security and displacement related, which feeds burden narratives and forces them to rely on goodwill immigration policies.

 

Homeward’s focus on employability potential allows every claimant the opportunity to leverage untapped strengths in order to position themselves as future contributors to local communities. This approach also helps ensure humanitarian programs focus on the most dire and urgent cases. 

 

The Homeward ecosystem also facilitates opt-in, remote training and education programs, allowing claimants to use wait periods productively by building on their identified strength areas. Our partners include hiring pools and companies and organizations willing to hire our users, connecting them to employment opportunities as early as possible. We’re easing the future of global migration by accelerating a more global future of work.

There is a wealth of potential and talent within our globally displaced populations. The way we think about resettlement needs to better reflect what they could offer local economies and communities - and our systems must then lead them through a path towards economic

independence and prosperity.
