With more than 79 million displaced people around the world, there are so many stories to tell. Here, find documentaries, books, and more stories from UNHCR.
In 2009, UNHCR Canada and COSTI Immigrant Services organized the first Refugees and Human Rights Child and Youth Poetry Contest in commemoration of World Refugee Day, June 20. The purpose of the contest has been to bring human rights education, particularly awareness to the refugee situation, to the Canadian classroom. By asking youth to write poetry about refugees and human rights acts as a tool to encourage Canada’s future to think as humanitarian and compassionate leaders towards their brothers and sisters living worldwide.
