I left my Country in 2016 for political and family problems together. I was a boy abandoned by everything. So many friends were being killed or put in jail even if they were innocent (just so they would have to pay the ransom). I was afraid they would arrest me just to ask me for money and my mother would not be able to pay.
Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Algeria, Morocco, Algeria, Libya
I wanted a place to be peaceful and help my mum.
Finding someone to help me, someone to say ‘look he is a minor, you have to send him to school’. I was a minor when I arrived but then I was called to the Commission after a year and I was over 18, they didn’t explain to me legally how it worked. I was not informed.
Yes, I work at COOP (i.e. an Italian supermarket)
I volunteer at the Red Cross. Now I’m studying for my driving licence. Every Tuesday and Friday I help out at home and take out the rubbish.
Integrating well, working and studying together (I would like to be a doctor). I am now attending the second year at high school.
They need to be informed about what is here, what is to be done, how it works, the laws to be respected, the importance of studying and helping others.
