This project was developed to
enhance awareness of refugees, challenge intolerance and facilitate community inclusion.
It is based on the award winning children's book,
"The Boy at the Back of the Class" by Onjali Q. Rauf.
The story focuses on a group of friend's growing awareness of what it is like to be a child refugee, after befriending and helping a new boy who has joined their school.
