Signpost is a life-saving, life-sustaining initiative. Through a portfolio of digital tools, Signpost provide accurate, accessible and timely information that matters most to people affected by conflict and disaster. Signpost was launched by the International Rescue Committee (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 over 1 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.
