Migrant children have the right to live in an environment free from xenophobia

Thursday, December 1, 2022

Being a migrant child in another country is not easy. Often migrant children must face rejection and ridicule from their peers. 

"At the beginning, making new friends for me was a bit awkward. I was a little afraid to be discriminated because I am not from here," said Luis Andrés, a Venezuelan teenager who lives in Lima, Perú.

World Vision is committed to providing safe, xenophobic-free spaces for Venezuela's migrant children to better integrate in their new communities. In addition, the work is done together with the host population so that everyone can share in the processes and improve their lives.
