With a diverse professional background, Tama’s volunteers always aim to bring out the best in each other through efforts of mentorship, skills sharing, and constant self-development. The concept that drives the team is empowerment through professionalization, which helps the team stay on top of the challenges that come working with vulnerable persons.

Our objectives are to always uphold a human rights based, person-centred approach to all of our services, as well as continuously work towards offering vulnerable persons the necessary support to empower themselves. As a team, we will continuously specialize in supporting victims of violence against women, survivors of sexual violence in conflict, persons affected by forced migration due to climate change and/or protracted conflict, survivors of gender based violence and disabled persons.
