Amani Alkufairi, a mother of four, has successfully completed her training as a biology laboratory technician. She will now strengthen the PRIMACYT team with her skills and knowledge as a skilled worker. Amani, who fled the civil war in Syria in the summer of 2015 with her husband Mohamad Al Wazir and three young children and applied for asylum in Germany, began her training as an apprentices at PRIMACYT in summer of 2020. Due to her commitment and good performance, she has now been able to shorten her training by half a year.
“I congratulate Amani on this outstanding achievement. I would like to thank all employees, but especially our trainer Melissa Thiede and our laboratory manager Dr. A. Ullrich for their support, with which they accompanied and helped Amani on this path. The whole team is a good example of the “Wir schaffen das” mentality of the Germans, which was evoked by the then Chancellor Angela Merkel in the year.” said Dieter Runge, Managing Director of PRIMACYT. He also thanked the Schwerin Chamber of Industry and Commerce, which had made the start of Amani’s training possible three years ago with a special permit.
PRIMACYT has been part of the Businesses Support Refugees network for several years, and as an employer was thus also able to play a small part in ensuring that Amani and her family have had German citizenship since December 2022.
Alexander Sattler was also very successful in passing his intermediate examination as one of the year’s best to become a biology laboratory technician. Alexander started his training only 10 months ago and also applied to bring the exam forward. “Another example of how much can be achieved with a willingness to perform, individual commitment and support from the trainer and the team.” Dieter Runge was pleased.
