Children told us that one of the things they lack the most while on the move is access to information that they trust.
Children moving across Europe who fall outside of the protection system and lack access to services, support and information to remain safe can now relay on the Miniila app solves this problem.

Facts about the topic

More than 30, 000 children in migration went missing in Europe. Once missing, and outside the protection system, children face situations of sexual / labour exploitation, trafficking and are exposed to serious risks to their mental and physical health.


The Miniila app aims to empower children on the move to take essential decisions for their future in an informed manner. It gives children access to child friendly and up to date information on their rights and provides support in ten European countries (Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, France Germany, Greece, Italy, Slovenia, Sweden and the UK) and in ten languages (English, French, Arabic, Farsi, Tigrinya, Pashto, Urdu, Ukrainian, Russian and Bengali).

Children were involved throughout the development process, to make sure that the app responds to the needs of children in migration.

Miniila facilitates access to understandable information about dedicated services such as shelter, food, and health according to the child’s location.


Over 500 European organisations (such as Red Cross, Save the Children, UNHCR among others) joined the Miniila community and have already entered more than 1050 services in the app. The Miniila app can be downloaded from App Store or Google Play.
