“Amal, you must leave, and soon!”

That's how the grandfather told the Syrian girl that she would need to leave the country to escape the war. By herself. She was only 12 years old.

And so begins the journey of Amal, a refugee child, who crosses seas and borders for endless days in the hope of arriving safely in Italy and finding her uncle.

The project is a partnership between Webcore with Editora Caixote and the digital book is available free of charge for download on smartphones and tablets running iOS and Android systems.

The book tells a story that unfortunately is repeated a lot these days, the reality of children who travel unaccompanied in search of refuge. It has two versions: one is a free digital book, with the support of UNHCR (UN Refugee Agency), which aims to reach as many people as possible; and there is also a physical version of the book, made possible by PROAC SP, which can be purchased directly on the Editora Caixote website.

The digital book is completely free, but you can choose to pay for the app, if and how much you want. The revenue collected makes it possible to expand the application to new languages and add new narrations – in addition to 20% of the amount collected being converted into donations to UNHCR.

The digital book contains:
• Text based on the story of Carolina Montenegro;
• Animations and visual narrative by Renato Moriconi;
• Portuguese and English versions of the story;
• Different narrations available, with different nationalities and accents.
