Spark15 is the first youth refugee organisation in Malta, and is a testament to the growing diversity of Malta
Spark15 started in 2015, when UNHCR Malta organised a weekend seminar for youths with refugee status. We were inspired to find solutions to the migration challenges asylum seekers face.
During the seminar we realised that there was a great synergy between attendees and that we would like to continue beyond that weekend. We began by advocating for youth issues related to the refugee community.
Spark15 members are a mix of young people who come from a number of countries including Eritrea, Palestine, Somalia and Libya, with ages ranging from 18 to 30 years old.
