Here’s a throwback example of how Tandem helps refugees integrate.
Today we present the experience of Tammam Abduleahab who volunteered with the European Youth Forum
in September 2016. He spoke of his “interesting adventure” as he called it :
“As a Syrian volunteer, Tandem gave me the opportunity to get the experience through a short volunteer placement of the European Youth Forum. I had on my task to write articles about the refugees and their problems that they face in their life in Belgium. In this volunteer placement, which took two weeks, I got the opportunity to get an insight into the working culture in Belgium. In addition, this experience gave me more skills to work with the others as a team and make a quick and short training to motivate myself to find an office job here. I can’t wait for the summer holiday to get another experience with Tandem again!”
