Today, our director Mathijs Euwema is one of the speakers at the European Forum of the rights of the child. He will present our programme BONDS: ‘booster the emotional dimension of social inclusion for immigrant mothers and children’. Migration often involves the separation of families and changed roles within families. It can be a traumatic experience that affects children and mothers’ sense of well-being. Moreover, severe post-migration living difficulties such as delays in processing refugee applications, obstacles to employment, racial discrimination, and loneliness, can contribute to long term difficulties in emotional dimension and the social inclusion of these people in the host contexts.
The BONDS project intends to design and develop specific training/education programme for immigrant mothers and children, focusing on the acquisition of key competences and soft skills for social inclusion and well-being through the methodology of Collaborative Comics Storytelling.
