Have you ever wondered why they have to learn new languages and learn how to live with new people, and in most of the cases as in an unplanned journey and under some very difficult circumstances?
Have you ever wondered how despite their limited preparation, they manage to survive in their new destinations, under some very extreme hardships?
What about the future, the children, and the hard and ultimate question of many migrants: “Back to Base”, returning to their home countries of origin, after many years abroad and sometimes without realising the dreams that set them out on the immigration journey in the first place?
All these and many more are what you will learn in this training class, hearing directly from the protagonists themselves, on how they have journeyed from Africa to Europe and have been transformed in the journey.
