Project Goal:
Improving the efficiency of the system for including children with special education needs in mainstream education - resource centers’ specialists, mainstream educators,  parents, local communities and institutions  by supporting co-operation between them. Focusing on the child as the center of the educational process. 

The project activities presume the active participation of all involved parties. First phase of the project includes research and evaluation of the needs, strengths and weaknesses of the existing practice and reality for inclusion in the mainstream schools of children with special educational needs. The next phase of the project will follow with series of meetings, workshops and trainings, resulting in development of applicable mechanisms and tools for improving children's integration, well-being and fulfilling their individual needs.

One School for All

One School for All is our most encompassing and wide-reaching cause, our raison d’etre. Our ultimate goal is comprehensive introduction and application of the principles of inclusive education.

Inclusive education is a process of changing the school environment based on respect and acceptance of other people. It implies wise management of school processes in a way which makes children feel supported to develop their capacity and to overcome hardships; which makes teachers feel encouraged and confident that they are able to cope with the growing challenges, while parents are able to assume their responsibility and role in partnership with schools.
