simbolo-PUNTO-INTERROGATIVO-problema The problem: 15% drop-outs

Many students in Italy drop out of school without obtaining a qualification. According to Eurostat data, we have a 15% quota of “early school leavers”, i.e. young people between 18 and 24 who have only obtained an intermediate school certificate.

simbolo-CUORE-risposta The answer

With the Program “School First!”, launched in 2006, Mission Bambini supports study and homework help centers for pupils receiving compulsory education in primary and secondary schools. In the afternoons, children are free to go to an after-school center, where they can do their homework and spend time with other children of the same age-group in a positive, peaceful and stimulating environment. The project’s aims are: preventing school drop-outs by supporting learning opportunities provided by educators and volunteers; offering places where young people can meet, socialize and develop through a wide selection of cultural, recreational and sporting activities; promoting the integration of different cultures. Study help and after-school centers are mainly located in degraded urban areas where people live in poverty and destitution.
