Little Amal

A little girl who went on a BIG journey

Little Amal is the giant puppet at the heart of The Walk. She has travelled 8,000km in support of refugees.

In 2021, the 3.5 metre-tall living artwork of a young Syrian refugee child walked across Turkey, Greece, Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and the UK to focus attention on the urgent needs of young refugees.

‘Little Amal’ is not so little at 3.5m high. Find out more about how she operated on her journey from her creators Handspring Puppet Company.
