Don’t let the name fool you — there’s nothing small about Little Amal.

Meaning “hope” in Arabic, Little Amal is a 12-ft tall puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee and was created by Handspring Puppet Company to raise awareness about the experiences of displaced people.

Since July 2021, Little Amal has traversed 6,000+ miles across 97 cities in 15 countries and hosted ~300 free events on her “The Walk” tour. The 38-city North American leg of her tour — starting in Boston and ending in Tapachula, Mexico — will add an additional 11,000 miles to her trek once complete.
