The project REACT aims to facilitate and promote the integration of asylum seekers and beneficiaries of international protection by enhancing their capacity to act as agents of change and foster a culture of welcome and inclusion in Maltese society by raising awareness of their experience, foster a deeper understanding of the causes of forced displacement, promoting greater respect for human dignity and appreciation of the diversity of people and cultures in Malta today.
As part of this ERF-funded project, JRS Malta put up a theatre production called SOS: Stories of Somalia which was held from the 2nd till the 4th of April at Kirkop Primary School. Around 220 primary school children from 5 different school participated in this 3-day event. Ably written and directed by Malcolm Galea, the production captivated the student's attention with a mixture of real-life refugee stories and african traditional stories.
