The Refugee Challenge is a simulated experience that takes participants through a refugee journey. The participants are faced with challenges that represent the difficulties faced by millions of people in refugee like situations around the world.
The Refugee Challenge is a highly immersive experience that involves running a simulated refugee experience as an incursion in a host school with neighbouring schools visiting.
A key part of the project is to train and equip student facilitators to run the event.
The project seeks to educate the school community about human rights, refugee issues and to create an atmosphere of informed understanding and welcome. The student facilitators also gain personal development and leadership skills.
