Empowering crisis-affected people to be informed decision-makers
Signpost was launched by IRC and Mercy Corps in 2015 at the height of the European refugee crisis.
This initiative was designed to respond directly to the needs of refugees arriving in Greece with nothing but their cell phones.
Since then, we have developed three Signpost instances: Refugee.info in Europe, CuéntaNos in El Salvador and Khabrona in Jordan --
reaching nearly 1.5 million users.
Supported by our core protection principles and best practices at the foundation, each instance has a customized portfolio of digital products tailored to the needs and technology preferences of local crisis-affected populations.
Signpost instances receive guidance and quality assurance through a central global team of IRC and Mercy Corps experts in product management, protection technical assistance, social media, and journalism.
CuentaNos.org is a dynamic service mapping platform which compiles vital information about civil society and governmental services, their locations, contact information and how to access them.
The Refugee.info platform provides timely, accurate, and useful information to refugees in Europe.
Over 50% of our team here are refugees and asylum-seekers themselves.
