Project Summary

This project will be implemented through a partnership established between Move.T+, Portugal, STEP – Society for territorial progress, Slovakia, Sisak Youth Associations, Croatia, EuroDEMOS, Romania, and ISAB, Hungary.

Nowadays, it is essential to encourage and support the personal and social development of underprivileged children and young people, stimulating on a permanent basis the integration of the individual in society with an effective response to the needs of the population on several levels.

All activities planned under this project are focused on children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, reduced social conditions and poor families, including children and young people under institutional care. These actions and activities intend not only to actively promote the learning of rules and behavioural standards but also to energetically promote social inclusion and solidarity, providing the opportunity to integrate underprivileged social groups into the community. In addition, this project will provide a great chance for the participants to meet new people and create a new network of friends.

Several initiatives and a set of educational and training dynamics will be implemented such as sports activities, awareness campaigns, laboratories, round tables, workshops, cultural visits and murals, small theatre, photography exhibitions, video sessions, music concerts, among others. The methods to be used will allow the introduction of different approaches such as role playing, debates, discussions and conversations, structured dialogue, surveys, banners, posters, flyers, visual arts, communications, team building, paddy paper and thematic games.

While developing these and other activities the participants will be encouraged to strengthen values such as solidarity, democracy and friendship, enhance the level of competences and transferable skills, promoting the participation in democratic life and the access labor market, promote active citizenship, intercultural dialogue, social inclusion and solidarity to foster development, both on a personal and social level.
