“No one becomes a refugee by choice, but the rest of us can choose how we help” (Filippo Grandi, UNHCR).
Even though the last couple of years the media attention was focused on the refugee crisis in Europe, people are also forced to flee from persecution in Africa, Asia, and South America. The experience that awaits refugees in their new countries is overwhelming. Racism, ignorance, loneliness are the issues refugees face when trying to rebuild their lives in a new country and adapt to a new environment.
Youth work can play an important role in facilitating young newcomers in a society.
