Power of Positive Relationships for Displaced Children and Families
Rojena Tatour, Greece

Working with refugees currently living in Greece, Rojena Tatour helps us understand what it is like to be a refugee, what it is like to grow up in a place of conflict — to live a childhood in which fear and anxiety become normal. She shares the critical importance of relationships and creating communities grounded in dignity and respect. “We can create change; we can make a difference; we can create environments for healing,” she tells us. Rojena leaves no room for hopelessness. Her own deep respect for people as individual human beings is articulated as she speaks about refugee status being only one part of a person’s story and her expression of gratitude for those who allow her to stand by them.

People who commit their lives to young children and their families have powerful stories to tell and we can find our own hope and inspiration as we listen.  Bonnie’s Global Café is the space where people gather to share their stories.  Stop by for tea and find affirmation and companionship.
