Meet Our Founder

Luma Mufleh, a trailblazer in refugee and English Language Learner (ELL) education, is a Syrian/Jordanian entrepreneur and coach. Her journey began unexpectedly in 2004 with a serendipitous encounter during a pick-up soccer game in Atlanta, where she met a group of young refugees adapting to life in America. This experience ignited her passion for supporting refugee education and led to the founding of Fugees Family.
