About this campaign

The Walk's Amal Fund with Choose Love
 

A little girl on a BIG journey, Little Amal is the giant puppet of a ten-year-old refugee, who has traveled over 9,000km from the Syrian border to the UK embodying the urgent message “Don’t forget about us”.

This fall, Little Amal embarks on a new journey to spread her message all the way to New York City. 

Half of all refugees are children. Half of all school-age refugee children have lost their opportunity of a formal education. Today tens of thousands who have fled war and persecution are urgently in need of support.

To help these children, we’ve launched The Walk’s Amal Fund with Choose Love. The Fund supports young people into education and helps them achieve their potential wherever they are rebuilding their new home. 

The Fund supports grassroots groups that are funded by Choose Love, which provide academic training and education as well as supplying people with food, shelter, and medical services.

The Walk celebrates resilience, courage, and hope. We hope those moved by Amal’s story – our traveling festival of art and hope in support of refugees in collaboration with St Ann’s warehouse and Handspring Puppet Company - will contribute to this Fund and help young refugees to rebuild their lives.

Little Amal walks NYC” is a collaboration between The Walk, St Ann’s Warehouse, and the world-famous creators of War Horse Handspring Puppet Company, with Artistic Direction from Amir Nizar Zuabi.
