We hereby present you Kamal Aldalati, student of medicine at the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela.
He will be with us in the next human rights training session for our project Youth toYouth in Galicia to share with us his testimony and give us a wide perspective and approach to the reality migrants live.
Kamal is a syrian refugee, he used to work as an anesthetist in a hospital until he had to run away from his country because he was at risk of death. His testimony will help young college students who will volunteer with us, to fully comprehend the dimensions of the migratory phenomenon and the right to asylum. Additionally, they will learn key tools to sensibilize about this topic to children in schools.
We still have places available for you to participate in our project!

“Youth to Youth” has as main objective to educate and raise awareness on human rights trough out two different phases:
To begin, university students receive an academic formation from experts in diverse topics, so they can afterwards go to schools and pass on their knowledge in a dynamic way to pupils in between 5 and 18 years old.
The programme has been running the past nineteen years all over the Spanish territory, and even in some places abroad. 2020 was not going to be any different.
This experience has been very well received by the students of Universitat de València, who had the opportunity to learn about:
- Basic human rights concepts
- Sustainable development concepts
- Migratory Law
- Gender equality and non-discrimination
- Tolerance on social media, facing hate crimes
- Environment and sustainability
Students will soon attend school centres from your region to hold four different sessions on the topics of their choice. Therefore, they develop management and communication skills while raising awareness among primary and secondary students.
If you are interested, there are still places available for the cities we are going to be visiting in the upcoming months. Here you can find the links to register for the forthcoming calls:
