Increasing awareness in Portuguese society of refugees and the problems that they face was the key objective of this one-year project.

Awareness raising was tackled through training and information campaigns. The project sought not only to raise awareness and understanding about refugees themselves, but also the issues that they face. Information on reasons for forced migration was included in the training and campaign.
The training took place in both primary and secondary schools, thereby raising awareness amongst both teachers and students.
