About this campaign

The Walk's Amal Fund with Choose Love
 

A little girl on a BIG journey, Little Amal is the 12 foot puppet of a 10 year old Syrian refugee child at the heart of The Walk. Over the last year she has become a global symbol of human rights, especially those of refugees. Her urgent message to the world is “Don’t forget about us”. 

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, The Walk and Choose Love have launched The Amal Fund, which supports young people into education and helps them achieve their potential wherever they are rebuilding their new home. 

The Amal 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.

Little Amal’s journeys are festivals of art and hope, celebrating resilience and courage. We hope those moved by Amal’s story will contribute to this Fund and help young refugees to rebuild their lives.

“The Walk” is a collaboration between The Walk Productions and the world-famous creators of War Horse Handspring Puppet Company, with Artistic Direction from Amir Nizar Zuabi.
