Story

Refugees For Refugees, an initiative created by My Name Is Human Project founder Gemita Samarra, aims to partner displaced people from around the world to help create solutions for global humanitarian crises. In September 2018, Gemita will be working in collaboration with Harrison Gardner, a globally established eco-builder and sustainability designer, at Karam House, a school for urbanised refugees based in Reyhanli, Turkey. Gemita and Harrison will be teaching a two-week workshop with the students of Karam House to design a school made out of recycled materials to be built in Bidi Bidi refugee camp in Northern Uganda.

The students participating in the two-week workshop will begin by learning about the project, the cause, and the people of Bidi Bidi. They will then be ready to organise into smaller groups to start designing the eco school.

Research has shown that the incidence of PTSD and other stress-related illness is much higher for people who, after experiencing traumatic events, have no tangible way of feeling valuable within their society. We live in a time where survival and grief have been all some child refugees have known. The hope of Refugees For Refugees is that having the opportunity to become a contributing member of something greater will give these children the chance to cope with the stresses they have faced, and in doing so provide them with a sense of purpose, confidence, and security.

Crew expenses (economy flights and shared accommodation) (Team of 3-4 people from UK to Turkey and UK to Uganda multiple times) - £3,200
