The aim of BONDS was to design and develop a specific training program for refugee and immigrant mothers and children, through comics. Why comics? Comics is an efficient story-telling medium, having the power not only to tell the stories of creatures with supernatural powers, but also to transfer knowledge. The educational model we developed aims to supply mothers/caregivers and children with a mix of soft skills, as well as language/cultural/social and civic competences. These competences will also provide women and children with opportunities for public voice, which are fundamental for a real social inclusion in the host community.
Booster the emotional dimension of social inclusion for immigrant mothers and children is co-funded by Commission under Erasmus + Programme – KA2 Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices – Strategic Partnership. The project started on 1st October 2016 with a total duration of 24 months.
