NaTakallam (“we speak” in Arabic) is a social enterprise that connects forcibly displaced persons (mostly Syrian and Iraqi refugees based in the Middle East) with language-related income opportunities online, including tutoring and translation services. NaTakallam leverages the global gig economy and accessible technology to transcend borders and generate income. We vet, train, and support displaced people to become language conversation partners and translators through a user-friendly digital process. NaTakallam offers affordable and flexible language practice with native speakers that can be tailored to users’ needs and interests, as well as translation and interpretation services. On the other end, the platform offers a gainful income opportunity to displaced people who face restrictive labor policies in their country of resettlement. Thus, refugees gain a dignifying source of income, enabling them to support their families, and participate meaningfully in the digital and local economies, all while fostering global intercultural exchange and raising awareness on the refugee crisis.
