The new year began for the CSC Danilo Dolci in the name of new projects, partnerships, enthusiasm and a lot of interesting activities to be implemented. In particular, on January 12, the partners of the project ROBIN met for the first time in Bucharest, Romania, to officially start this new project, establishing working methods and future steps to be taken to achieve the project’s objectives.

The project ROBIN – Reinforcing cOmpetences to Build Inclusion through a New learning methodology, wants to promote the integration of migrant children and prevent their dropping out from school, through the development of an integrated innovative learning methodology to support educators who work with this target. Through its activities, the project aims to strengthen the social, personal, technical and methodological skills of adult educators, to develop the most appropriate instruments to approach children on the move and to address effectively their special learning needs.

The project is coordinated by the foundation Terres des Hommes Elvetia (Romania) and has as partners, in addition to CSC Danilo Dolci, die Berater® (Austria), Know and Can Association (Bulgaria) and the Foundation INTRAS (Spain).

In this first phase of the project, the partners are engaged in a research on the situation of each country in relation to existing programs to support the target group (children up to 18 with a migrant background) at national level to investigate the needs of educators in the sector and establish what is the base on which to work to develop a successful operational strategy.

ROBIN is a two years project funded by the Erasmus + program, Key Action 2 – Strategic Partnership in the field of Adult Education.
