Promoting the inclusion of refugee children at school, while fostering harmonious inter-personal relations at the school and community levels. . .

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 will take this doll with me. The doll is important to me. My mum gave it to me when I left for Greece. When I arrived, my doll reminded me of many things. But I missed my mum. When I slept with the doll, I had beautiful dreams. That's why I love it very much. When I was angry, I used to take the doll and hug it and I felt happy. I would play with it because I didn’t have any friends and I felt lonely, I talked to it as if she were my girlfriend.
