Arabsweden is a portal, providing Arabic-speaking people with information on all key aspects of living in Sweden. From finding work and accommodation to understanding immigration procedures, culture, laws and more. We continually update our website to ensure people have access to the most up-to-date information.
We do this with the goal of helping Arabic speakers integrate in Swedish society quickly so they can lead happy and productive lives. Arabsweden began as one man’s desire to improve others’ experience of moving to Sweden by sharing his knowledge. You can read more about our founder, Raed, here (link to Raed’s profile).
Before coming to Sweden, I worked as a social advisor in a school of 800 children in Jordan, helping teachers, students and families with a range of issues they were facing: from study difficulties, behavioural challenges to financial hardships and disability.
Originally, I had wanted to study computer science but then I received a scholarship to pursue psychology. The more books I read, the more interested I became. Through the arabsweden website and related social media channels which I manage, I now get to combine my two biggest passions: technology and helping people.
I am happy to say I am now settled in Sweden with my wife and three wonderful children and I work every day to help others lead happy and productive lives.
Sweden – who would have ever thought I would be here? Stockholm and Ikea was all I knew about Sweden. Then, I met the love of my life, prompting me to consider leaving my home country and relocate. That’s how I discovered Raed’s Facebook page and website. I saw he had left no question unanswered, was very helpful and seemed like an honest, decent man. I contacted him and when I came to visit Sweden we met for fika. He was friendly, explained what the process of moving involves. I knew there was someone I could ask for help and that made the process much easier.
I am now married to the love of my life and building a new life in Sweden. Thank you, Raed, for being an integral part of my journey.
