As part of her psychosocial program for refugees, Blossom Hill Fellow Leyla Atik organizes recreational days in which children can participate and experience developmentally appropriate fun, creative and playful activities. While these activities do not address any psychosocial problems directly, they aim to create an environment that fosters children’s curiosity, encourage involvement in extracurricular activities, and increase their playfulness and joy. These activities include but are not limited to watching movies, reading books, free drawing sessions, going to exhibitions and paying community visits.
In November 2018, the child protection team organized two film screening days and invited children to watch Inside Out. The team chose this movie specifically to strengthen the kids’ emotional wellbeing. For most, this activity was their first experience of going to a movie.
