NO DIGNITY without Education RIGHT

Right  -  Accessibility & Quality  -  Barriers
Education & street: the children and young people of the street
without right, dignity and health
 

"D&H-5P" Aim: promoting the RIGHT & DIGNITY, using Europe objectives to increase accessibility and quality of Social and Health Services for the homeless and excluded people in 5 different accessing countries in E.U.

Objectives
of "D&H-5P":
1.   To increase the knowledge of the participants about European law & application, common objectives, appropriate practices, with reference to the NAPs Inc. and to JIM.
2.   To analyse on Warsaw the efficient practices and the coherent legislation (concretely and daily applied !..) especially about job services  & social system.
3.   To propose innovative and adequate instruments for
       *   access to
Education's RIGHT, adequate and sustainable
       *   access to
Education SERVICES
for all vulnerable & excluded people and more for
children and young  people....

Background : In most countries children experience levels of income poverty that are higher than those for adults. Material deprivation among children must be a matter of serious concern, as it is generally recognised to affect their development and future opportunities. In 2001, rates of poverty risk for children were of 24% or more in Spain, Ireland, Italy, Portugal and the United Kingdom. Differences in the persistence of child poverty relative to adults are also significant (12% as against 9% for the EU as a whole), which suggests that specific factors shape the risks of poverty faced by children relative to those faced by the entire population.

  • We must prevent early school leaving and promote smooth transition from school to work.

  • We must develop a focus on eliminating child poverty and social exclusion among children;

Reflections & Questions:

  1. “Education” as a fundamental right of all person !  In what way the legislations and local administrative disposition guaranteed...., in order to protect and insure the real “dignity - well being - happy living” for children who live in disadvantaged and vulnerable conditions ?...

  2. From "institutionalisation" in large and anonymous college to family small communities.... 

  3. The "school of the street" in on side and in other side what are the new opportunities & alternatives proposed as education and protection against exploitation, violence, "body market"..., illegal job... 

  4. The proposed future for children suffering of “lack of identity models" .... as alternative to "addiction" and "band".

  5. In what way the NAPS & JIM increase the respect, protection and evolution for the children in society....

  6. What local application, daily practices, pilot projects ?…:  Difficulties, solutions & proposals
