Refugee Celebrations on World Children’s Day 2017

Yesterday at the AFE Primary School we celebrated International Children’s Day by reminding the children how special each one of them is.

All the children painted their hand on a big poster as a sign of their uniqueness. In some classes they also had a chance to be the teachers and teach us some words in their languages.

Acknowledging the power of children to make a difference by just being themselves and by becoming our teachers is something we should do every day. Therefore the work of providing education and a safe space for children to grow and develop is fundamental.

As C. S. Lewis once said, “Children are not a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work.”
