Hi Stella

This is a great idea!

Anything that will help them to feel more settled, learn things that could lead to employment and greater integration with the wider community (if they are allowed to work and mix with local people) and also change local attitudes towards refugees is a positive step.

It will be good if the refugees themselves are actively involved in providing training/mentoring to each other e.g. language classes, small business skills etc, and in organising the annual event. They will all have different skills and interests so, with a bit of structure in place, it should be possible for them to learn from and help each other as well as getting assistance from outside sources.
