NaTakallam (“we speak” in Arabic) is an award-winning, woman-founded, social enterprise that delivers high-quality, impactful language, translation and cultural exchange services, by vetted and highly-skilled refugees and displaced persons worldwide. NaTakallam’s Conversation Partners (CPs) receive a much-needed income, new marketable skills, purpose, and re-gained dignity. Since 2015, NaTakallam CPs, who at times have no other access to employment due to their legal status and location, have self-generated over $700,000 in income through online language tutoring, translation work, and guest speaking sessions. They have now teamed up with Ben & Jerry’s to help bring you these sessions for Refugee Week.

We will be speaking with Asalah who is in her thirties and is originally from Syria. She holds a Bachelor's degree in Economy and E-Marketing. In Syria, she worked as a middle school teacher, before moving due to the conflict. After spending a few years in Lebanon, she has been resettled in Italy. She loves teaching.
