Looking for a meaningful way to engage your team remotely?
Bring Refugee Voices to your (virtual) office or community.
NaTakallam’s interactive guest-speaker sessions offer enriching conversations that equip participants with a more nuanced global awareness and an ability to encounter diverse ‘others’ with empathy.
NaTakallam leverages accessible technology and the gig economy to empower refugees. Each virtual session contributes directly to refugee livelihoods, at a time when they might be cut off from the local labor market, in camps, or in other transit circumstances.
Refugees* are better prepared than most of us for the future of work and the challenges of tomorrow — they are already facing it today. Navigating unexpected crises, continued uncertainty, and existential hardships, they have learned valuable lessons about personal and professional and professional resilience, entrepreneurship, and grit.
Let our Conversation Partners inspire your team.
