The project aims to address the challenges faced by young people with a refugee and migration background and to break the stigmas associated with migration. Therefore, the project offers young people with a refugee and migration background the opportunity to express their thoughts and stories about migration, identity, adaptation and life in Estonia.
The implementation of the project “Listen to the Sound of My Story” is supported by MTÜ Mondo in the project “Shared Journeys” co-financed by the European Commission, the Civil Society Endowment, the Estonian Ministry of Culture and the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
