The Walk Education Programme

From July to November 2021 a giant puppet of a 9-year-old Syrian refugee girl called Little Amal walked from the Syria-Turkey border, across Europe to the UK, travelling 8,000km to focus awareness on the refugee crisis.

Before, during and after her journey Little Amal connected people from refugee and non-refugee communities through creative learning projects to help forge lasting bonds of friendship. The Walk‘s Education programme developed by, with and for each community, responding to local realities with a focus on bringing people together through projects that transcend borders, culture and language.

In celebration of Little Amal’s journey through New York City, we will shortly be releasing a new version of Amal’s Education Activity & Resource Pack designed with New York City students and young people in mind.
