Using technology to ensure and improve education in crisis contexts

NaTakallam


NaTakallam is a social enterprise that recruits, trains, and connects refugees and displaced persons with Arabic language learners and students worldwide to practice Arabic with native speakers and engage in cross-cultural exchange via videoconference technology. Our student users practice Arabic with Conversation Partners (CP) –all of them individuals displaced by conflict-- improving their speaking skills, engaging in powerful intercultural exchange, and frequently, developing friendships between worlds that are often polarized in the media and political spheres. Most importantly, NaTakallam CPs receive a much-needed income, new marketable skills, purpose, and re-gained dignity.
