Yonas Abrahaley and Saam Abdi are studying at the University of Luxembourg. They have been working with us as students assistants for a few months. Both of them have greatly contributed to the REFUGOV project.
Yonas is originally from Erythrea and he interpreted in Tigrinia during interviews we conducted with Erythrean refugees.
Saam is orginally from Iran and he interpreted in Farsi during interviews we conducted with Iranian and Afghan refugees.
Both of them have transcribed the interviews they interpreted.
They have also interpreted during information sessions we carried out in the different reception facilities we are studying in Luxembourg. The information sessions were meant to present the REFUGOV project to the residents. The work of Yonas and Saam has been crucial to inform refugees about our project.
