Peer2Peer Project

Relate schools to combat Roma dropout

Peer2Peer Project aims to prevent and combat Roma school drop-out, as a symptom of social exclusion, through a Peer to Peer approach relating Roma students, educational and local community as well as to provide the educational community with an inclusive schooling paradigm, based on an existing best practice, through the transfer of competences, skills, tools and methodologies. Based on a Peer to Peer approach, the Project aspires to connect Roma students, educational and local communities enhancing social cohesion, sustainability and resilience of the communities as a whole.
