The Headquarter Team


The team of Josoor covers many different backgrounds and experiences. All its members, no matter what their professional or personal background, share one thing: the belief that humanity will overcome any obstacle.

Qutaiba
Zarzour

Co- Founder & Mastermind
28 years old – born in Idlib

I experienced the problems refugees in Europe are faced with first hand. Since I am always analysing the problems I happen to come by.

And with my experience as the youngest project manager in Abu Dhabi combined with my social entrepreneurship enthusiasm, I realised the solution couldn’t be to only focus on certain individual problems but rather to see the big picture and put all solution attempts from organisations and the community into a holistic system.

Natalie

Co- Founder & CEO
26 years old – born in Vienna

I studied International Development Studies in Vienna and worked in different non- profit projects (including Nepal Trust Austria,

Austrian Bhutan Society, Uzi Island Conservation Society Zanzibar, Ithuba Skills College Johannesburg, Swimsol and the UN LLDC Conference).
As I always cared about doing good as much as possible and fighting for a bigger purpose literally since I can think, it was without question that I decided to volunteer on the borders of Hungary, Serbia and Croatia when the influx of refugees into the EU increased in summer 2015 – where I met my partner in crime, Qutaiba, and immediately realised the potential of his idea.
