Today, people around the world join together to celebrate Zero Discrimination Day. Discrimination continues to undermine efforts to achieve a more just and equitable world and causes pain and suffering for many. Discrimination has many forms, from racial or religious discrimination, to discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation or age, to bullying at school or at work.
On this symbolic day, Humanity Crew and Saba Family Foundations are launching a new project that aims to promote the refugees’ wellbeing and to improve their integration process by addressing one of the most important challenges among refugee children, parents and the local community: bullying.
For more than a decade, Saba Family Foundations have been dedicated to a single mission: promoting the well-being of humanity throughout the world. Today, the foundation still pursues that mission with its goals of building greater resilience and advancing education, health-care and human rights.
What is in the Project ?
- Developing bullying prevention programs for schools aiming to educate teachers and counselors about bullying directed at refugees.
- Creating mentorship programs that partner local and refugee students.
- Teaching refugee parents about bullying and showing them how they can support their children.
- Cultural orientation activities/classes in refugee camps that teach local western culture.
Media campaign that promotes anti-discrimination and anti-bullying rhetoric.
