 100 refugees with residential permit trained to be Salesforce Admin in 2020

Gaspar Rodriguez, Marielle Schweickart and Nick Broekema founded the RefugeeForce Foundation in November 2018. They have started with their first group of 5 refugees in spring 2019, an additional 9 that fall. A new group will start early 2020. Goal is to have trained 100 refugees with residential permits to be Salesforce Admin at the end of 2020. g-company committed ourselves to find places to work or internships for these people. Adina Lewis found employment for 1 day per week for several months, Philip Gahshan has started his internship of 2 days per week at Interserve, while spending the rest of his week as intern with Balt Leenman here at g-company.
