EACH CHILD AND EACH YOUTH HAS THEIR OWN DREAMS, FEELINGS, IDEAS, DOUBTS, TALENTS AND JOYS.

People flee from their land because of an untenable situation or in search of a future with more possibilities. Building up a life from scratch in an unfamiliar environment is never easy. Even for the next generations. A lot of young people with a migration background grow up between two worlds and have a feeling that they belong to neither of them. Problems with discrimination and social exclusion make a smooth integration into society even harder.

KIYO wants to give children and youth with a migration background new perspectives. That way their chances to successfully integrate into society enhances. Society is full of prejudices. By taking the time to get to know each other these can be put aside and replaced by mutual respect and understanding. KIYO wants to encourage people to have a more nuanced view on society.

Take a look at our project about children and youth with a migration and refugee background.
