NaTakallam ('we speak' in Arabic) connects forcibly displaced persons with language and cultural exchange students around the world, providing them with economic opportunity, purpose, and re-gained dignity. Displaced people have self-generated over $400,000 through their work with NaTakallam. Give your students engaging, immersive language practice and cultural exchange with NaTakallam.
NaTakallam has partnered with QFI to bring virtual guest speaker sessions that amplify refugee voices to schools worldwide. Programs can be conducted in English or Arabic (or a blend of both), as a single 60-minute session, or a three- or 10-part series, any of which can be integrated into an existing school class or an extracurricular club activity.
