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.

My village is small, with few houses and few inhabitants. It has many plants, like orange trees, cypresses and many mountains, Kouloukonas on one side and Psiloritis on the other. This village used to be very large and it was called Klepsimio. Now most people have left or died. But in the summer, the village comes alive, as those who have left come back on vacations.

The other picture shows the school. It has many trees and there is a big mountain behind it. This school was an elementary school in the past too, but it was older than the other school. This is where my grandfather and my grandmother used to go to school.
