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.

Amne's transition story

My mom was busy. But she wants to be a servant, mechanic. We moved because it was was. I was afraid of being murdered. It was difficult that we couldn't be together. Because i did not get mr. I missed my relatives and friends. We only got important papers and ID cards with us. The qualities i gained through the experience of moving were to be strong and to be patient.
