  • My name is Rym El Moussaoui, I have a B.A. in Language and Communications Sciences: Language Acquisition Engineering and currently pursuing my Masters’ in Curriculum and Educational Management.

    I chose to volunteer at LAL because I am looking for a meaningful volunteer opportunity that ties in with my career objectives – I am very interested in education especially working with students from vulnerable backgrounds. I have worked for several years in INGO’s in education projects made in response to the Syrian crisis. Being able to help others is the kind of work that I am passionate about especially where I can utilize my skills to make a positive impact in the lives of others.

  • My name is Manon Fakhoury, I’m a social science graduate from Paris Dauphine. LAL gave me the chance to work with them as an intern for the summer.

    The current challenges faced by our societies, such as the environmental problems, war, terrorism, the refugee crisis, or the rise of populism, are becoming more complex every day. Being aware of these issues leaves me no choice but to commit to trying my best solving them, in order to make a difference.

    I’ve always wanted to dedicate my life to working with NGOs. I believe that having the opportunity to do so in my home country, surrounded by a very motivated and welcoming team will allow me to learn and grow both personally and professionally.

It is my first day in Tabshoura and seeing all these hard-working, warm and influential people here motivates me even more to be part of this wonderful team and help them fulfill their mission.
