Loga is an app that enables refugees to earn a meaningful wage by digitizing Arabic language documents using their smartphones.

The Loga app converts Arabic text images into highly accurate transcriptions that can be copied, edited, and searched. Millions of Arabic documents remain locked in PDFs that can’t be searched, copied, or analysed. With Loga, refugees can remotely earn income by scanning Arabic print documents and converting them into digital text. Through a centralized process, Arab governments, businesses, and libraries simply have to upload their files to Loga and receive results. A pilot is currently being established at the Za’atari refugee camp in collaboration with the United Nations High Commissioner For Refugees (UNHCR) with plans for full implementation in the fall of 2017.
