Watch Aden's Journey: Episode Three

Episode 3

Last week we saw how Aden relied on smugglers to get him across borders and the terrible experience he had when caught by a border guard. We have also seen how Aden is recording his journey on his mobile phone, and how this allows him to stay in touch with his family. When we were developing this course, we spoke to young people who had been unaccompanied and separated children on the move. They told us how important their mobile phone was to them. It meant they could stay in touch with their family. It also helped them network with other children on the move, and learn from their experiences.
