    Wa ʿAlaykum As Salām Wa Raḥmatullahi Wabarakatu,

    What I was thinking was what if there was a platform for ʿUlama, Students of Knowledge, and teachers to form small institutes where they can teach the subjects they specialize in and also gain skills as well. Think of it as having a place where many small institutes are in one building, and organizations like universities who accredit some of the courses taught there as well. It would effectively be a bridge to get people who teach into places where they can use their knowledge.

    My university will be hosting an event where students should come out with an idea to help and restore the dignity and right of over 10 million refugees .

    Do you guys have any ideas I can pitch for the event and maybe build upon.

    I was thinking along the lines of making a social media platform like airbnb where refugees stay in with homeowners for a given time, in which they converse about thier cultural/religious views and sort of build a relationship and underatanding. This is much like students who wish to study abroad (from western countries to the east) they stay at a family house , and basically live with them and converse as to improve thier (foreint language speaking skills)

    Of course there are many fiqh issues here which need to be taken into consideration that is why I am asking.

    here is a quick synopsis:


    Do you want to make a change in the world? Do you want to be part of a great social impact
    that focuses on making the world a better place? Hult Prize is the perfect start for you.

    The Hult Prize Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to bringing together the
    world's next wave of social entrepreneurs. It encourages the world's brightest and most
    passionate minds to compete in teams to solve the planet's biggest social issues with innovative ideas for start-up enterprises. The ultimate Hult Prize winners receive USD1 Million to launch their start-up, and bring their idea to life.

    Potential Application Ideas: Crowd-funding, SMS communication, Social Media in
    Developing Countries, and much more!

    There will be a Hult Prize at Rutgers Pitch Competition taking place in December 9th here at
    Rutgers University, New Brunswick. Student teams (undergraduate, graduate, PhD) will
    have the opportunity to pitch their idea at this local competition and advance to regionals directly if they win.

    This year's challenge addresses: "Refugees - Reawakening Human Potential" and will focus on restoring the rights and dignity of people and societies who may be, or are forced into motion due to social injustices, politics, economic pressures, climate change and war.

    How can we build scalable and sustainable social enterprises that restore the rights and
    dignity of 10 Million Refugees, by 2022?
