The motivation for SeHeMe project derived from the difficulties that young migrants and refugees face during their attempt to get integrated into the society of the host country.

It seeks to help this process by providing the target group with a media voice. More specifically, it will offer language and media literacy training to youth newcomers (refugees, asylum seekers and migrants) recently settled in host countries. This will be accomplished through the establishment of an online magazine run entirely by migrants and refugees supported by language learning and media literacy tools tailored to their educational needs.

The project will focus on the “why’s” (environmental, political, modern-day slavery, social and economic) and “how’s” (facilitators and traffickers) of the situations they came from. There is no media source asking why and what are our responsibilities as fellow human beings are towards immigrants.

The objectives of the SeHeMe project are:

  • To provide language and media literacy education simultaneously to young immigrants and newly arrived young immigrants in a host country. 
  • To ease young immigrants’ integration into their host country by giving them a voice through which they can express themselves and share their experiences.
