« Educating the children living in slums »
Goals : - To reorganise and capitalise the pilot project after 3 years of experimentation
- To offer assistance and school mediation for the children living in slums. Civic volunteers come 3 days a week in the slums to awaken the children interest to attend schools. Through playful activities, those volunteers develop a bond with the children and create a trusting relation between the families and the school frameworks.
- To raise awareness on the issues that are affecting those children living in slums
- To develop partnership with the concerned institutions and non-profit organisations
Number of beneficiaries : 100 school-aged children (3 to 16 years old) over one year
