The Acronym CAM (Children Affected by Migration) is used when referring to children and young people who are refugees, asylum seekers, economic or social migrants or those left behind by family moving to another country. ICAM partners seek to benefit all CAM through further partnerships with, and support from, organisations and individuals who share our determination to find and implement ways of alleviating the effects of the growing humanitarian crisis caused by migration, both now and in the longer term.
At the heart of this project, Including Children Affected by Migration, is the concept of ‘convivencia’ – a Spanish word meaning ‘living together in harmony’ and the knowledge that children do not learn well if they are unhappy, insecure or frightened.
The purpose of the ICAM project is to increase the inclusion, and to improve the learning capacity, of children affected by migration (CAM) by enhancing the climate of convivencia in schools and at home, by raising awareness about children’s rights and the law protecting them, and by providing additional support in school and in the family for their social and emotional learning and general wellbeing.
Consequently the ICAM project will develop a child and family support programme to:
a) Increase the awareness of children/young people affected by migration who are potential victims of exclusion and those who enter into contact with them, so that children affected by migration understand and benefit from their rights under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the European Convention on the Exercise of Children's Rights..
