Nisreen is from Syria and arrived in 2015 in Germany, as a refugee. She had a career in Pedagogy in her home country and left everything behind to escape the war. Her journey to Germany took four weeks - her future was a blend of uncertainty and hope. Nisreen never gave up hope and in 2018, she was accepted on a Trainee Program at adidas and worked for few months in my department. I was immediately inspired by her strength, braveness and resilience. She had learned German and was now starting again her professional life, in a completely new environment.
After finishing her program in adidas, Nisreen joined Siemens as assistant PLM at their Global Learning Center. This year she has been accepted at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) for a Master in Human Rights, her dream since 2016.
We are fundraising now for her education, so Nisreen can make her dream a reality, and help others in the future, when she intends to work in the field of Human Rights. Watch the video to learn more:

(Jan/2021 - Nisreen was able to manage in a different way the funds for union membership (3 x 52 euros), the student ticket (3 x 75 euros) and the monthly expenses for books, internet and printing (12 x 170 euros) so we are also reducing it from here.)
