In My Pocket Workshops

 

A brand new and unique project, suitable for children aged 9-11 in any educational setting.

Human rights literature, arts & crafts workshops. Presented by the WE ARE HERE! Foundation, this creative and interactive educational program inspires children aged nine to eleven to be upstanders and not bystanders, providing them with the tools for building strengths to deal with our diverse world. Participants will read the uplifting true story by Dorrith Oppenheim Sim, and watch a video about how she fled her homeland on the Kindertransport.  They will learn about today’s multicultural communities and displaced people of different backgrounds, with millions of refugees, many of whom are children. The workshop includes a related creative arts & crafts activity. All materials are provided. Participants will take home their own mini copy of In My Pocket. Visit Website
