Yesterday Travis the Translator had an Info Table at every Venture Café location around the world. Travis found its team here at our Thursday Gatherings back in January. They have come a long way and yesterday they took advantage of our international community to celebrate the start of their collaboration with Open Learning Exchange. Together they want to overcome the challenges in education for refugees by removing language barriers.
They had Info Tables at Venture Café’s in Boston, St Louis, Miami and of course here in Rotterdam!

They sent out some news regarding this last Tuesday which you can read below.
New ‘Universal Translator’ to revolutionize education programs for refugees around the world.
In pursuit of its social mission, Travis, a company creating cutting edge voice translation devices, has partnered up with Open Learning Exchange (OLE), an organization providing learning opportunities for people in emerging economies.
When customers pre-order a Travis the Translator device for themselves, they can now donate a second device to young people participating in programs supported OLE. The donated devices will be used by OLE’s partners in countries with big refugee communities such as Turkey and Jordan. The devices will help youth in marginalized and at risk communities as they pursue critical language learning opportunities.
