My name is Lara and I will be part of the Advocacy Team for six months. I am 25 years old and I am from Frankfurt am Main (Germany) where I studied Law. I graduated last summer and wanted to gain insight into the work of an NGO/NPO working in the field of Human Rights before starting my legal clerkship back in Germany.
The issue of refugees became huge in Germany last year, which makes it very interesting for me to see how it is being dealt with in another country. I am excited to experience the daily work of an organization like Scalabrini Centre that puts so much effort into helping refugees with their problems and is trying to give them the tools needed to create a better and safer life.
Living in Cape Town, meeting all these friendly and welcoming people and getting to know a new culture are only some of the great side effects that come along with working at Scalabrini Centre. I really enjoy being a part of the Scalabrini team and I am excited to work with all of you!!
