NaTakallam ("we speak" in Arabic) provides income access to refugees, displaced persons and host communities through the digital economy by hiring them as online tutors, teachers and translators.
NaTakallam is a social enterprise which provides services that include online language teaching and tutoring, translation and virtual interpretation services, as well as cultural exchange sessions. On the one hand, NaTakallam provides its workers with the training and mentorship needed to perform the services, offering them a pathway to sustainable income during and after displacement and/or in the early stages of resettlement. On the other hand, NaTakallam provides clients with a much-needed service with baked-in impact. To date, refugees have self generated $900,000 in income through their work with NaTakallam.
