The Walk Education & Activity Pack

Introduction

Little Amal, a young refugee, is embarking on a remarkable journey. Little Amal is a 3.5 metre-tall puppet. She represents the 32 million children who have been forced to leave their homes and are often separated from their friends and families.

Amal will walk across Turkey and Europe to find her mother. She wants a home where she can sleep safely in her bed. To go back to school. To start a new life. How will the world respond to Little Amal? Will it welcome her? Will you?

As Amal walks from the Syria-Turkey border all the way to the UK, we ask the world not to forget about children who have had to flee their homes because of war or other reasons beyond their control. These refugees and asylum seekers are children just like you. Children of the world – the future!

 

Would you like to join Little Amal on this adventure by completing the challenges in this Activity Pack?  

There are lots of different ways to join in, including writing poems, stories, making artwork and being creative wherever you are in the world.

And everywhere Little Amal goes, she’ll be collecting all that she has learned and all her memories. So, whether you see her in real life or follow her journey from home, you can be part of Little Amal’s BIG adventure.

As you complete the Creative Challenges in this Activity Pack, share your creations with people all around the world who are following Little Amal’s journey. Post your photos or videos of anything you create on social media and tag @walkwithamal using #actsofwelcome #LittleAmal and you could end up being showcased in our online gallery.
