HALLO! Our new cheerful ICOON for kids-poster for refugee children is ready! Discover the world and German language with our colorful symbols, showing lots of useful items for school, living, eating or playing together with the German description. The A1 poster is made for pre-school and school children up to age 10, intending to build positive bridges through presenting items which the children already know from home and also can find in their new surrounding. It was created in cooperation with ABWAB – the first arabic newspaper in Germany – and the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation. The poster is FREE and can be ordered directly at the foundation calling +49-(0)22 41/24 60
We are very happy about your ongoing interest in our aid-project: the „ICOON for refugees picture dictionary“. Your great engagement, initaitive and drive also enabled our small team to print the new 3. edition of 15.000 books. 10.000 new books are already donated to refugees and aid-organisations. Should you be in need of new books, we are very happy about your message!
Great cooperation with The Paritätische welfare association and Henrich Druck+Medien: 50,000 free „ICOON first communication leaflets“ are delivered to German charitiy organisations to help, where help ist so much needed. Thanks to all making this possible!
In recent weeks, we have received an increasing number of enquiries every day from aid organisations, asking if they, in their (communication) crisis, may distribute our ICOON book, which was originally designed for tourists in 2007 (www.icoon.eu), to refugees for free. We are able to provide a number of free copies, but cannot absorb the cost of printing the large number of books that is now so urgently required. The book must still be adapted to the needs of refugees to include symbols specific to their special situation. Next step for us will be to make a special version: ICOON for refugees.
