NaTakallam enables refugees to use their language skills to deliver language services to earn a living through the freelance, gig economy. Refugees participating in the program are provided with the training and mentorship needed to perform the language services such as translation, online language teaching, and cultural exchange sessions.
NaTakallam connects refugees to remote work opportunities in the language sector. NaTakallam’s goal is to provide refugees with relevant training and a means to make a viable income with their host country.
Beyond the access to income, NaTakallam gives refugees marketable skills and a restored sense of dignity and purpose, while users get access to affordable language services and opportunity to directly contribute to refugee livelihoods. The program also fosters intercultural understanding and changes the narrative around refugees.
