Refugee Awareness

Refugee awareness workshops, talks and keynote speaking

At My Bright Kite CIC we have over 16 years’ experience delivering bespoke refugee awareness workshops and talks to audiences throughout the UK, Europe, United States, Canada and Middle East.  

Our workshops and talks are based on personal lived experience as a refugee and practice based knowledge developed from over a decade working in the refugee sector in the UK and refugee camps overseas. Our dynamic workshops aim to educate and inspire positive change.

Our primary audiences for this service are:

  • Primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities

  • Social workers and foster carers

  • Refugee organisations

  • The general public

Participants leave our sessions feeling better informed and with their eyes, hearts and minds opened, feeling inspired to do their part in ensuring their schools, communities, services and settings are welcoming, empowering and inclusive for all.

Our workshops and talks can be booked as standalone sessions or you can combine them into a package that makes for an incredibly moving and powerful catalyst for change.


We will consult with you and build the content to meet the specific learning needs and interests of the audience and we offer an evaluation and impact service where needed.

"We would like to thank you very much indeed for your huge contributions to our world refugee day... there is no doubt that there was a lot of food for thought for the students that day and we've had some lovely thoughtful responses from them. They also had a lot of fun."   

Head Teacher, Primary School

“Gulwali's resilience, determination and humour is a lesson to us all. He has faced unimaginable hardship and had his childhood taken away. Despite this, he bears no grudges and has instead dedicated his life to raising awareness and improving the lives of millions of people around the world. It was deeply humbling and an honour to listen to his story, the message of which will no doubt stay with the audience for a very long time to come”

Abi Wharton,

Head of Global Awareness at Bedales

"Nola gave an inspiring and insightful presentation at the Beyond Borders conference. Her passion and care for the subject is infectious. She speaks with such compassion about the subject that she is so knowledgeable about. I can't recommend her enough."
