Our ongoing projects
Edu-Action Capacity Building in the Field of Youth
Following the benchmark of the Europe 2020 Strategy to reduce early school-leaving (ESL) to 10% the project Edu-Action aims at fostering cooperation and exchange in the field of youth between Programme Countries and Partner Countries from different regions of the world involving youth organisations that aim at increasing school attendance.
Since September 2012 Per Esempio, in partnership with the italian NGO WeWorld, has been carrying out the project Frequenza 200. The aim of the project is to contrast early school leaving in the risk area of Borgo Vecchio in Palermo.
I.N. C.L.A.S.S.E is a project promoting returning to school and continuing education aimed at young people between 10 and 16 who are at risk of leaving school or already did so. The central idea of the project is that the educational community can be a “place” where discussion and debate are possible and desirable. The project aims to build and maintain a partnership between the relevant actors of the local reality, enhancing the role of families, schools, volunteers and the third sector.
In the month of February 2015 a project named F.A.R.O. had started, in order to prevent the wife-beating phenomenon.The project is embedded within the national strategy of WeWorld, a non profit organization which has been assuring, from more than 15 years, women’s and children’s rights, both in Italy and in the South of the World; it is aimed at establishing prevention and awareness as instruments essential for the necessary cultural change we need to challenge the alarming wife-beating phenomenon to start.
