The book My Friend The refugee’s journey explained and illustrated by the children, is a new project by Open Cultural Center whose objective is to raise awareness and public sensitivity regarding the reality of thousands of refugees as a result of war lasting months and years, getting poorer every day and stuck in a present with no solution.
The book, aside from being a tool to raise consciousness , can also be used as an educational tool in schools. Teachers can resort to it in class and the children can work with it through a number of activities to develop values related to inclusion, respect and tolerance towards other cultures.
If needed, you can find the pedagogical guide here. More information about the project can be read here.
