Before being a migrant, Yasir had a profession

In their home country, they used to be a potter, cabinet maker, carpenter, or couturier. In France, they become forklift operator, cleaner, safety guard, cashier… Their expertise, sometimes a result of several years of training, is often is consigned to oblivion. It was from this observation that a 36-years-old French ethnologist, Ines Mesmar, decided to create an organization called la Fabrique nomade, last spring. In Montreuil, her NGO helps artisanal migrants reconnecting with their original profession. That’s the case of Yasir, artisanal potter from Sudan.
