HP Inc (HPQ) on Sep 20, 2016 announced a commitment to open new HP Learning Studios in the Middle East. HP will work with Digital Promise Global, the Global Business Coalition for Education, Microsoft and Intel to establish centers equipped with computer systems and teacher training services to give refugee students access to the latest education technology and provide adults with the opportunity to learn essential business and IT skills.
This week, HP also committed to provide technology and HP LIFE training resources to the International Medical Corps Livelihoods Center pilot in Istanbul, Turkey. As part of this initiative, HP will make online freelance opportunities available to refugees. In addition, HP agreed to support the opening of two Lynke and Blue Rose Compass tech centers for refugees, also in the Middle East.
