'Bubble buddies.'

Bursting bubbles bring joy and laughter.

Context: Currently 5o Syrian families are settling in my town in Germany.

Outlook: Many new communities that are allocated in new places tend to be afraid to be in touch with the communities around them. I think local young or adult citizens showing/guiding how to buy, save, read, think meeting on a regular basis can build trusts and motivation together. Building trusts is important.

Idea: By 'bursting bubbles' activities might bring communities closer together and learn about each other's cultures and beliefs.

Great thought starter Lee! I'm liking the notion of easing refugees' transition and helping them navigate around the barriers of their host communities.
