The assembly, focused on dispelling some of the myths surrounding refugees, discussed the many challenges people face.

Student Leadership: Refugees Awareness and Action

With at least 82.4 million people forcibly displaced from their countries, the refugee crisis is a serious ongoing issue.

As students engaged with the assembly and asked important questions, I came to the core of my presentation - ‘What is a refugee?’. People often confuse migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers. However, blurring these lines undermines the importance of legal protection that countries should provide refugees and creates dangerous misconceptions. 

The UN’s 17 goals for sustainable development have the power to create a better world by 2030.

The assembly focused on dispelling some myths surrounding refugees and discussed the many challenges people fleeing their countries face. This brought me to the UN, whose agency, the UNHCR, plays a key role in aiding the crisis. The UN’s 17 goals for sustainable development have the power to create a better world by 2030. Students in ISM have already begun addressing these goals through joining the Global Campus website and participating in charity events. By accomplishing these goals as a school, we can do our part in helping refugees and the world in general.

Together we can speak out, volunteer, donate to trusted organisations, spread refugee stories and more! Lala

Often, we might feel like there isn’t much we can do to help, especially as students. However, my main goal in doing this assembly was to show otherwise. To end on a hopeful note, Mr Morris (ISM’s charity and UNICEF coordinator) highlighted other ways our school is helping the refugee crisis.  

After the half-term holiday, we will begin collecting old electronics for a refugee donation drive, and our charity events will continue to raise money for the cause.
