Abstract:  This multi-media kit deals with refugee issues in a manner comprehensible to 9-14 year olds. The eight part kit begins by introducing students to the concept of world refugee movements. It then explores Canada's refugee policy, considers who is allowed asylum here, and looks at the resettlement needs of refugees once here in Canada.

The Refugee Experience kit then examines in greater detail three geographical areas of refugee concern: Southeast Asia (Laos, Kampuchea, Vietnam), Latin America (Chile), and Africa (the Horn of Africa and Zimbabwe). Participants then consider positive suggestions as to how they can meaningfully contribute to the growth of a responsible global community.

Contents of the kit include: a user's guide, 20 books, 20 maps, 10 board games, 2 sets of slides, 1 record, 1 filmstrip and tape, a folder of background material, and a role-playing game. The User's Guide provides programming suggestions, background material and a host of possible discussion questions on refugee issues.
