Enabling refugees to thrive through the power of their own ideas


Enabling refugees to thrive through
the power of their own ideas


Featured Entrepreneur:

Wisam, the founder of Mosaic Boards

Wisam is an entrepreneur and architect from Syria, who set up Mosaic Boards as part of TERN’s TakeOff programme! @mosaicboards

Mosaic Boards provide hand-made decorative objects that are also designed as mindfulness aids. Each beautiful wooden board is inspired by geometric Islamic architecture, and while they can be enjoyed as exquisite pieces of art, they are also puzzles that aim to facilitate mindfulness and stimulate the senses.
