During 5 days Elsa Yohannes Samuel and Lillian Hjorth from Human Rights Academy (HRA) visited Tunari, Pascani and Neamt municipalities in Romania. In the project 'Integrated Center of Support through Inclusive Education’ HRA is working with municipalities and NGO's to support vulnerable children and young people at risk, including Roma. It was a very positive experience to see the new Center for children in Tunari. Thanks to all partners for good meetings and warm hospitality!
The aims of the project are to increase the social inclusion of children of risk situation in the Ilfov, Neamt and Iasi regions and to prevent and reduce school abandonment by improving the access of children to quality, fair and inclusive education. One main result is the new children’s activity center in Tunari. Among other activities are study visits for exchange of experience between the Romanian and Norwegian partners, as well as educational workshops. There will also be developed a manual for teachers with participatory methods for vulnerable children and youngsters.
