which translates to "Arabs in Germany," was founded a year ago by Syrian IT expert Talal Mando.The idea for the site came to Mando shortly after the soft-spoken 28-year-old arrived in Germany and started looking for guidance about how to apply for asylum, learn German, and find work.Since the website's launch in December 2015, it has received more than 1.1 million visits and more than 4 million page clicks, nearly all from users inside Germany, according to Google analytics.Mando said he thinks arabalmanya.com has resonated particularly well with newly arrived Syrians because he and others working on the site have shared their experience.He now has five people writing for the website – all Syrian migrants working for free after a small startup grant from a local organization ran out.
