“From our own experience, we know that it is not always easy to find a place where you feel at home and where you are encouraged to learn from each other,” says chairman and founder Lyas Mouani. “Although there are many organizations, we see that a lot of young people still fall by the wayside. With Nakama we want to reach these young people.”
