BACKPACK ID

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.

Dad was a mechanic and mom she was.. I went to school. We moved because of the war. I was scared of the war and death in Syria. We were afraid of being killed. It was really hard to cope with our situation. And to leave my country and relatives. I miiss ed my friends and relatives. We got the language, traditions private properties with us. We were helped by memories by thinking about them and keeping in touch. Qualitites I gained through the experience of moving where one has to be strong and to be patient
