The Geneva Challenge 2015: Finalists (Update: UP Wins)

Congratulations to the President of PhISO, Frances Antoinette Cruz, and her team as the only finalist from the Philippines, and won the first prize. Their project, Assisting the Reintegration of Philippine Return Migrants through Mobile Technology, addresses the gaps in information and services by providing integrated platforms through built-in USSD (unstructured supplementary service data) codes for cellphones and applications containing phone services and updates on pertinent information concerning return migrants. These technologies provide links between various entrepreneurial, employment and educational opportunities, which return migrants can use to improve their skills and/or capital.
