When Rahaf Jaber became a translation consultant with several NGOs such as Save the Children and USAID, she realized that humanitarian work inspired her. As of that moment, she opted to widen her experience to become a skillful translator and interpreter in this sector.
Thereby, Rahaf joined Islamic Relief Worldwide in conjunction with the Lazord Fellowship as a Project Support Officer, being chiefly responsible for reporting and translation. She gained outsize experience and added great value to the organization, especially in reporting, translation, and proposal writing.
Rahaf holds a Bachelor’s Degree in English Language and Translation from the University of Petra. Thanks to the tremendous curiosity she had towards her major, she proudly graduated at the top of her class. In 2016, she established her own small business as a freelance translator, building good professional relationships with prestigious NGOs and clients since then.
Nouha Farhat is a Lazord fellow and project coordinator at the Maghreb Economic Forum working on the 3eshra project. She completed her master’s degree in Translation from the Faculty of Letters, Arts and Humanities in Manouba.
Prior to her new position, Nouha had previous experiences with NGOs including “AIESEC” where she was a member of the incoming exchange department promoting community and social development projects. She was also a facilitator in “Jasmine Foundation”, a volunteer interpreter during the “World Social Forum” in 2015 and a short-term observer with “IWATCH” during the legislative elections. She also worked as a teacher’s assistant at an American preschool for two years.
Imen Oueslati is currently working as a Programme Assistant at UNDP Libya, an international organization based in Tunisia. Her main tasks revolve around the implementation of different projects’ activities.
Prior to this, she was a project assistant with an Italian NGO working on local governance in the framework of the Lazord Fellowship Program for youth support and civic engagement.
She did her undergraduate studies and completed her master’s in Translation at the Higher Institute of Languages in Tunis.
“I believe that the Lazord Fellowship Program offers a pathway for career development and stands as a fast-track program for reinforcement of professional networking.”
