Families and Children in Education (FACE)


Implementer: Zurich University of Teacher Education in cooperation with Macedonian Civic Education Center (MCEC)
Duration: January 2017 – December 2018
Objective: improving the self-competences and life skills of vulnerable children.

Description: Families and Children in Education (FACE) is a project that aims to support children from socially disadvantaged backgrounds, especially children of Roma ethnicity, to become aware of their capabilities and to encourage their personal development. Through active learning of life skills and developing the competences of these students, this project helps to increase their self-esteem and their trust in the value of schools and education. In this way, students will be better prepared to cope with everyday life and find their own path in society.

The project is designed for children aged 4 to 14. This project involves 7 primary schools in which there are a greater number of Roma children and children from marginalized backgrounds.

The purpose of the project is to strengthen the capacities of the teachers and school support staff, ensuring sustainability and preparation of technical and professional materials.
