Join Church World Services's panel discussion with three former refugee women who are remarkable contributors and heros in the Texas community.
During this event, hosted by Ayesha Hassan of CWS, we will hear from:
Aisha Koroma, a former refugee born in Sierra Leone, West Africa who resettled in the United States at the age of fourteen. She is now a refugee advocate and multi-cultural trauma-informed psychotherapist with experience in global mental health and social services. The core of her work has been with marginalized populations including refugees, immigrants, trauma survivors, victims of torture, homeless youth, at- risk children, and veterans.
Dina Al Bayati, an independent consultant working on building Peace and Security, Foreign Policy, and Youth Empowerment in the Middle East and North Africa. As a former refugee from Iraq, she began serving in Refugee Resettlement at nineteen, supporting refugee youth, refugee education and economic empowerment, and outreach. Her current work involves consulting and advising key stakeholders on the MENA region both within and beyond the educational sector and mobilizing political, social, and human rights awareness by engaging youth, activists, media, nonprofits, and more institutions.
and Geeta Farahmand Rahimi, the Matching Grant Case Manager with Refugee Services of Texas, based in Fort Worth. In her current role, Greeta helps refugees with case management and financial assistance through the Matching Grant Program. Greeta is originally from Afghanistan with 15 years of experience in project management, leadership, advocacy, women empowerment, education, training, and capacity building.
