A PLATFORM FOR YOUNG REFUGEES AND ASYLUM SEEKERS TO ENGAGE WITH POLICY AND DECISION MAKERS.
Brighter Futures is a self-advocacy group of active young asylum seekers and refugees with roots in many countries and continents.
These are young leaders – united by a passion and commitment to improve the quality of life for other young asylum seekers and refugees – while not forgetting to have fun. They could be our future politicians and doctors, singers and models, engineers and artists, accountants and footballers. They are young people who are the same as any other young people in the UK and around the world.
They meet weekly as a group to decide how to raise awareness about experiences and the obstacles they go through, addressing both the media and policy makers. The workshops are facilitated by Kazzum and Praxis. The young people might conduct research, speak at conferences, produce exhibitions or speak on the radio, and develop leadership skills through training workshops.
Kazzum works in partnership with Praxis to advocate Brighter Futures.
