One little girl. One BIG hope.
Last year Amal, a ten year old refugee, embarked on a remarkable journey that took from the Syrian border across Turkey, across Europe. In search of her mother. To get back to school. To start a new life. Now she takes her next steps…
Amal is a 3.5 meter puppet. From July to November 2021, representing all displaced children, many separated from their families, Amal travelled over 8,000km embodying the urgent message “Don’t forget about us”.
Since the beginning of her journey in 2021, Little Amal has travelled through over 70 cities and been welcomed at more than 160 unique events, reaching 875,000 people in the 12 countries she has already visited, and millions more online.
In June 2022, one year on from leaving Syria Amal took part in World Refugee Week by visiting 13 towns and cities across England meeting old friends and making new ones.
In September 2022, Amal will travel to New York City. After arriving at JFK Airport, she will travel through all five boroughs, meeting artists, civic leaders, community groups, and young New Yorkers of all backgrounds.
