Life Jacket: A Documentary About Refugees

A documentary was filmed in July that captures the refugee crisis in Greece from a child’s viewpoint and shows the need for Beyond Borders’ educational programs in refugee camps.

Mrs. Faten AlFaraj, TeachBeyond associate and film producer, spent two weeks in Greece documenting the educational crisis faced by refugee children on the island of Lesvos.

The production highlights the young refugees’ educational needs and dreams for the future. The full-length documentary will be used for awareness of education among refugees and fundraising events. A short video will be created that can be shown to churches, schools, and groups of people interested in helping support the education needs of refugee children.
