Behind the Concept
With a focus on Syrian refugees in Zataari Camps, Kite(square) is built on the philosophy that every child has the right to play. Based on news reports in 2017, the majority of refugees in these camps had phones and access to the internet, but were not allowed to leave the camp. This application utilizes the internet and their phones to connect kids in the camp with kids across the world, and allow them to play together. Kites have always represented happiness and freedom, which is why it was chosen. Kites can be made with simple materials and they have the ability to cheer up anyone!
