Importance of Capacity Building Workshop for Displaced Teen Immigrants

Danika Jurisic • 27 July 2017

For the past few days we have been working with a group of refugees, teens from Afghanistan. They are very vulnerable group, they are mostly young boys, very often targeted by gangs and sexual predators.

Giving them any glimpse of other possibilities, introducing them to coding, creation, further education could be the life changing factor and could actually save them.

We had around dozen of them at the first lessons, and they showed enormous interest. They are bright, motivated children who have nowhere to go. Most of them ages from 14 to 17. They can use all the help they can get.

Putting them trough this course would validate them not only in their own eyes but also would shout to the local authorities, social workers, educational system that they are able and willing to learn and perform.
