Sector of specialization: EDUCATION
Education is at the core of our projects. We constantly seek the integral development of the human person to ensure their human right to quality education. With our integrated focus, we address those activities, tangential to the project, aimed at meeting the basic needs of the beneficiaries, such as food, housing and health care.
In particular we call on competent authorities to involve citizen, teacher and community groups in developing concrete action plans. The ultimate goal is to provide and maintain public education which is free and of good quality for all, with priority investments in schools and teacher training with the aim of supporting the most vulnerable.
Therefore, our education goals can be summarized as follows:
- Improvement of universal access to basic education and training. In this way we will contribute to the accomplishment of the 2nd Millennium Goal: Achieve universal primary education
- Improvement of the quality of basic education and training
- Improvement of equity in education, with special attention to the situation of inequality faced by girls and women
- Improvement of the continuity and flexibility of the education system
