Pathways to Employment, Syrian Refugees Dressed for Work and more!

"The best thing I attained from the SkillME program is the confidence I was lacking, because every participant had the chance to express ideas or even deliver a speech to the audience. It was an important step to set up my own network with people from different cultures and industries. I appreciate all the support and help from the SkillME program!" - Mengdi, one of our SkillME clients
