JRS publication wins award

Congratulations to Clare Azzopardi who has won the first prize in the 2012 National Book Prize - children's category for JRS' book KIDANE!

During the academic year 2011-2012 JRS launched a project called “The Art of Storytelling”. Partly funded by the Malta Council for Culture and the Arts, the project aimed to promote a deeper understanding of the refugee experience among primary school children through the use of various art forms.

As part of the project, KIDANE - A Story of Hope was published. This book tells the story of an Eritrean who found refuge in Malta.

It was drafted by Clare Azzopardi after conducting several interviews with Goitom Yosief, whilst Marisa Attard contributed all the illustrations included in the book.
