Bridging languages and memories to foster multiple identities: "Never leave your backpack behind!"

About the project

BACKPACK ID is an innovative intervention for promoting the inclusion of refugee children at school in 4 European countries (Greece and Italy, Germany and Sweden), which are met with acute and very diverse challenges by the ongoing refugee crisis. Informed by these differences, the present approach on social inclusion advances a common account of social inclusion challenges; it sees the social inclusion of refugee children as a function of addressing the needs and perspectives of those children and their families, and local communities and stakeholders, while affirming common European values.

I am Raghad

I was born in Syria, in Aleppo, on the 5/11/2006. I lived in Syria for 10 years, then I went to Germany. I am in Germany.

Two years ago I came to Germany because there is a war in our country, that’s why I came to Germany. My father came by boat but me and my mother and my siblings came by plane.

In Germany I like free speech and the schools are a lot better than the schools in my country. The weather in my country I like better than the weather in Germany. I like the nature in Germany.
