"Restoring Hope and Building Capacity"
The Refugee Challenge seeks to create a better Australia for refugees through raising awareness, advocacy and providing a platform for refugee voices. Our key offering is The Refugee Challenge simulation which allows participants to walk in a refugee's shoes, be faced with heartbreaking decisions and start to understand the refugee experience. The simulation was originally designed for high school students in year 10 but can now be adapted to broader high school, primary schools, churches, workplaces and community groups. The Refugee Challenge can also help you run other events to support refugees in Australia.
Students will learn about:
Global and national refugee situations
Deeper understand-ing of Curriculum
Leadership and teamwork skills
Teamwork opportunities for all students. Student facilitators will workshop and practise leadership.
