Arvin, crossed continents to reach safety and a place at school

Arvin, crossed continents to reach safety and a place at school

We first met Arvin, a serious young boy from Iran, living in a tent in Dunkirk.

He had been through a long and dangerous journey from his home and despite still living in desperate circumstances, he had a lot of hope for the future.
Arvin and his brother who has autism, made the dangerous journey across the channel in a dinghy earlier this year.

We are so happy to share that Arvin is safe and starting school in the UK this week. He is very excited and has been going over all the school rules and his new uniform list.
If only we could make more children like Arvin safe and happy.
