The objective of the HLP organization is to give a decentralized answer for permit outcasts and dislodged individuals all over the planet to report their home, land, and property (HLP) in a self-sovereign, client driven way.

As per the Unified Countries High Official for Evacuees, there are an expected 60 million individuals on the planet who have been constrained from their homes. As of September 30, 2021, roughly 59,000 people have applied to the Canadian government for outcast status. A considerable lot of these people are incredibly defenseless. Their weak circumstance is exacerbated further by the way that such people could have no documentation proving their case of possession to the resources they have abandoned. For sure, an expected 54% of the total populace misses the mark on property title, deed, tenant agreement, or some other narrative confirmation for their most significant resources: their homes and their territory. In any event, when property titles or deeds exist, the legitimacy of such documentation may be hard to lay out, prompting questioned claims. The powerlessness to give confirmation of qualification to HLP that has must be deserted can make it very hard for such people to restore their lives in Canada or to resettle in their nations of origin when harmony returns. Also, continuous disagreements about right of responsibility for can prompt pressure between people who have needed to escape and the individuals who have stayed behind and taken up inhabitance of deserted terrains and property. This can make harmony difficult to accomplish in struggle impacted regions.

Endeavors to address the requirement for confirmation of HLP frequently include gathering documentation that is consequently utilized in cycles of momentary equity. Such documentation could accordingly turn into "chronicles in danger" of annihilation or modification in light of multiple factors, including cognizant and oblivious demonstrations, disregard, or capacity in unseemly circumstances. For instance, in January 2022, the Worldwide Board of the Red Cross as of late experienced an information break of north of 500,000 individual records from its worldwide Red Cross and Red Bow Development's Reestablishing Family Connections administrations. As of late, the ICRC has communicated worry about the information break, which was an outrageous infringement of the security, wellbeing, and right to get helpful insurance and help of very weak individuals that incorporated the names, areas, and contact data of missing individuals and their families, unaccompanied or isolated kids, prisoners, and others getting administrations from the Red Cross and Red Sickle Development because of outfitted struggle, cataclysmic events, or relocation and login data for around 2,000 Red Cross and Red Bow staff and volunteers. The ICRC has noticed that the break could prompt abuse of the taken information by country states and cybercriminals after hack.

Decentralized trust advancements, including blockchains and conveyed records, can possibly give improved answers for the shielding of the documentation of weak populaces of contention impacted people. A portion of the capacities of these advances that can make them an appealing choice, as investigated with regards to medical care information protection and security incorporate that the information that is put away in a blockchains can't be changed or erased without discovery (i.e., information are supposed to be "permanent"); blockchains' decentralized engineering implies that no focal power controls information access and capacity; and blockchains can empower people to hold ownership of the confidential keys that control admittance to and utilization of their own wellbeing information (at times alluded to as "Self-Sovereign" information the board, and frequently connected with the administration of character information, from which the moniker "Self-Sovereign Personality", of SSI, is determined). Those associated with the security of common freedoms have started to see the potential for utilizing the utilization of blockchain and dispersed record innovation in catch and protection of proof of basic liberties infringement.

In the current year's Block-a-thon for Social Great, which will be embraced by dispersed groups framed of understudies from UBC and HSLU (working simultaneously from 8:00-10:00am PDT/17:00-19:00 CET and in any case nonconcurrently), the objective will be to verbalize a bunch of utilitarian necessities for a decentralized answer for defend the HLP records of dislodged people groups and present a blockchain/DLT arrangement plan and, if conceivable, model execution that meets the practical prerequisites.
