Let’s Keep in Touch
Let’s Keep in touch! is a fresh, dynamic mobile library project that connects the children of refugee settlements in Athens with local and international elementary school classes through story exchange, storytelling and writing. Combining the idea of a library and the pen-pal communication, Let’s keep in touch! has already started its journey at the Skaramagas refugee settlement,north-west of Athens,by: ▪ creating a book depot of more than 200 Arabic and Farsi titles for refugee children and families to maintain the connection to their own culture through stories and educational materials, while also ▪ creating new connections with elementary school children and families in Athens through the medium of traditional, heart-warming correspondence. 20 displaced children have already started pen-pan communication with 16 local children.Letter by letter,the friendship grows and so does the journey.
