Sanctuary for Families
Anika Kabani (Arabic 2016), a 2018 ADF recipient, worked with a local language cooperative to host Arabic classes at Sanctuary for Families, the non-profit organization where she works in New York City, NY. The Arabic classes took place weekly on Thursdays from January 31, 2019 to March 14, 2019 for a total of seven two-hour sessions. The sessions were offered to colleagues at her organization who work with Arabic-speaking clients.
The language courses were attended by as many as 10 staff members at a time and they worked with the instructor to provide specific language training related to the work that they do. In addition, Anika was able to keep her own language study active and share her growth in the language with her Arabic-speaking clients.
