Today, we’re thrilled to be launching our Childhood on the Move Virtual Gallery – a collection of photographs and words from children and young people, sharing their experiences of migration.
Across Family for Every Child, our member organisations work with children on the move to ensure that they are provided with safe and caring environments. Listening and responding to the voices of children is central to this work, and this new exhibition provides a space in which these voices can be heard.
The exhibition draws on various projects carried out by our alliance, in which the ‘Photovoice’ method enabled children and young people affected by migration to discuss their experiences, and share their recommendations for improving their care and that of other children on the move. Through the photographs and captions on display, children and young people describe the challenges they face, as well as the strengths they acquire at different stages of their journeys. They call on policymakers to provide better protection during movement, improved support in host communities, and for all efforts to be made to ensure that families are not separated.
Visit the Virtual Gallery today to explore the exhibition. You can also learn more about the Photovoice method and read the recommendations from children on the move between Central and North America in our research report.
