CHILDREN on the move
While you’re reading these lines, there are some 28 million children on the move worldwide. They have been forced to leave their homes, their neighbourhoods, perhaps their countries in search of safety or a better life. Such a long and difficult journey never takes place unless there is a very serious reason for it.
With Iris, Unicef & the Department for the protection & promotion of children's rights of the Greek Ombudsman we created an activity book in order for children to write and draw their ideas, to express opinions, to discover questions and look for the answers, to propose actions and empathise with Children On The Move.
Many thanks for entrusting us with this project and for working closely with us, to Theoni Koufonikolakou, the Greek Deputy Ombudswoman for children’s rights, to Galit Wolfensohn head of UNICEF's Child Protection Programme for the Refugee and Migrant Response, to Greek Ombudsman Andreas Pottakis and the scientists of the Department for the protection & promotion of children's rights and Olga Siokou - Siova Communications Specialist, UNICEF Refugee & Migrant Response in Greece.
