Bring Refugee Voices to your community!
This World Refugee Month, inspire your classrooms or company with our powerful guest-speaker sessions.
Refugees are valuable teachers.
Refugees are better prepared than most of us for the future of work and the challenges of tomorrow – they are already facing them.
At NaTakallam, behind each language partner is a personal story of displacement, resilience and hope. Now, our trained professionals from refugee backgrounds are ready to share their knowledge.
NaTakallam’s virtual sessions will be tailored according to your team’s interests. Do you have specific corporate social responsibility goals? Where do you need more diverse voices? What are your staff development objectives?
The Refugee Voices program is available throughout the year to support your company’s needs. But if you are unsure where to begin, some particularly interesting dates include:
- March is Women’s History Month and March 8th is International Women’s Day
- June is World Refugee Month and June 20 is World Refugee Day
- August 19 is World Humanitarian Day
- September 21 is the International Day of Peace
- The end-of-year holidays are also a great time to organize a unique experience for your team.
To thrive in the world they are inheriting, today’s students must learn to cultivate resilience, entrepreneurship, and grit. Refugees have valuable lessons to share with tomorrow’s workforce, having already faced and overcome unexpected crises, uncertainty, and existential hardships.
Why not let your students benefit from their hard-won wisdom?

Invite our Co-Founder to your Events
As our co-founder Aline Sara often says, “Refugees are forced digital nomads’.”
Include an appearance from Aline Sara, an experienced speaker at events such as TechCrunch, the World Bank or Falling Walls, for an even deeper dive into the creation of NaTakallam from the ground up.
Each session contributes directly to refugee livelihoods at a time when they may be cut off from the local labor market, in camps or other transit circumstances, or struggling to integrate into a new home.
Packages range from $750-$2500 depending on the number of speakers and audience size.
