National Activity Plan 2006: Iceland

20 June 2006

Sixteen-year old Farihalh hardly misses school despite her numerous daily chores. Farihalh wants to become "Minister of Darfur", the region she and her family escaped in 2004.

  • In cooperation with the Icelandic Red Cross, a big tent will be built in the centre of Reykjavik, on 17th June, where different stations will be set up with activities in addition to a photo exhibition from refugee camps in Chad and Rwanda.
  • The activities will be composed of a distribution of food, a slide-show, a board game about refugee children in camps and a questionnaire about refugees. Moreover, language lessons will be provided to make people feel, how it is to be a refugee.
