International conflicts of recent decades have scattered millions of refugees across the globe, and among the many issues they face upon resettling is access to economic opportunity. So in June 2016 the online education giant Coursera launched an initiative to give more than 30 refugee-supporting nonprofits free access to over 2,000 of its courses. Through these partnerships, Coursera for Refugees offers education and training to over 5,000 refugees in 40 countries. And by working closely with partner nonprofits, Coursera has developed and adapts its coursework to fit refugee populations—which includes delivering them in the languages they speak. Since launching, Coursera for Refugees has clocked a total of 45,000 learning hours and counting.
