Roia is an independent non-profit organisation harnessing the power of information and communications technology to improve the lives of those living in the most difficult circumstances.
Founded in 2012 following the outbreak of conflict in Syria, Roia has since grown to become a leading actor in the region providing ICT-based solutions to local communities and non-violent organisations. Roia is dedicated to implementing quality projects that support human rights and wellbeing through the promotion of free speech, healthcare, education, improved livelihoods, and community stability.
By combining a local approach with systems thinking, Roia seeks to develop and implement innovative solutions that have far-reaching and long-lasting results for entire communities. Our fundamental goal is to use ICT to empower vulnerable people, giving them the tools they need to connect, communicate, coordinate and create a better future for themselves.
