What’s the PhotoStory Syria-Tipperary? A teaching resource for youth and community workers
A resource for youth workers, community workers and for teachers, it was developed with fifteen young people from Syria and their parents who are now living in Ireland. Many young people come to live in a new country with their family, or sometimes on their own, because of circumstances that are out of their control.
This movement away from all that is familiar can be very disrupting to a young person’s sense of self. With the migration of young people to Ireland in difficult circumstances, this resource encourages inquiry and points of connection, creating a bond between the creators and readers of these stories.
