The workshop began with a presentation by CCR staff about refugees/asylum seekers, UNHCR and its partners. Children were attentive and very willing to answer the questions. After that, proceeded the most interesting part – painting a poster. The enthusiasm and interest of the children made the poster very colourful and carrying a very important message: ‘Our power is in friendship and diversity’.
For a period of time, CCR has maintained a good relationship with the administration of the Galata gymnasium and has organised different events for the benefit of all who studies at this gymnasium. CCR appreciates this friendship and expresses its gratitude to the administration and pupils of the Galata gymnasium including other local schools for showing respect, support, understanding and friendship to refugees and asylum seekers.
