Parenting on the Move: Program for empowerment and promoting the development of competencies of parents of children up to 12 years of age, in situations of migrations and refugeehood

Parenting on the Move (PoM) has been developed with the objective to support parents in situations of migration/refugeehood to provide the conditions for well-being, resilience, and education of children of kindergarten and school age. PoM provides psychosocial support, education, and entertainment; it encourages family cohesion and intercultural exchange.

The programme has three components: parent workshops, family workshops (led by trained moderators), and materials for activities that parents and children can engage in, in a family setting.

As a program package, PoM provides a comprehensive framework for implementation of the programme through a) training of the facilitators of the workshops; b) mentoring through the implementation; b) monitoring and evaluation.

The program package consists of:

  • PoM Handbook for trainers and mentor - Program implementation quality assurance
  • PoM Workshop moderator’s handbook
  • PoM Games and Activities to Go - 31 cards with ideas for exploring, learning, creativity, and play for families (available in English, Farsi, Arabic)
  • PoM Notes to Go – a notebook with key learnings for parents (available in English, Farsi, Arabic)
