    Dressing for group success

    Day 347

    Looking Like a Team

    In El Nimir camp, we have an amazing group of volunteers. The team is by refugees, for refugees, and today we’re amplifying their hard work!

    The volunteers are eager to give back. Every day, the group spends time with the community, spreading the word about the services Alight offers. They also help connect Alight to refugees who may not be able to access our clinics on their own.

    This group is passionate about what they do, and we couldn’t do our work without them! “Being a volunteer means doing what you can without waiting for something in return,” one member Simon told us. “I volunteered to help my people, my community.”

    But though the volunteers are leaders, when out in the community, people often don’t know where they’re coming from. The group wanted to wear a uniform, to help look more cohesive and increase trust and visibility.

    The solution? Hats and T-shirts for the whole team! “It will help us a lot during our health awareness campaigns. All the people will know that we are working with ARC/Alight,” Simon added.

    Before we left for the day, Simon smiled and offered some wise word on starting with giving, saying “I really recommend all of you to volunteer, and to do things for others. It will help you a lot, and you will build good relations with others.”
