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.

A trip to India... Today I will write to you about my impressions, thoughts and feelings about India. India is a country you can travel to. Also, when I went there it was amazing, because the other times I had been there I was too young to understand anything, but this time I was older. I loved it, because there were great things to do there... Like having fun, walks, picnics, games etc. My impressions were that, when I went there, everything was different from Greece... Like, the cars were different, the taxis, the buses, all these were different (pictures). My thoughts are that there are many poor people in India, so if someone was to go there, they could bring their clothes, the ones that don’t fit, and give them there.
