Helping people who are forced to flee

Helping people who are forced to flee

Are you teaching about people who are forced to flee? Use this teaching toolkit to teach students about the efforts of the European Union (EU), UNHCR and UNICEF to help people who have been forced to flee in Africa.

Challenge the common narrative on forced displacement by giving your students new perspectives that can help them reflect on the added value of assistance provided to EU’s partner countries.

This teaching toolkit was produced by the EU, UNHCR and UNICEF.
