The partnership with Save the Children was launched to develop concrete responses to the Training and Social Inclusion area’s objectives, in relation to Fondazione CDP's "Countering educational poverty and early school leaving" and "Strengthening digital education" Action Lines.
The national health emergency has exacerbated inequalities in material and educational poverty.
Without targeted and immediate action, there is a real risk that up to 34,000 young people will drop out of school over the next few years.
Fondazione CDP is working with Save the Children, one of the most active and recognised organisations at national and international level for its activities to combat educational poverty and early school leaving, to reverse this trend and invest in our human capital, which is a strategic asset for the development and growth of our country.
The project with Save the Children is based on 3 key concepts:
Education because we believe school is where every child develops and consolidates their knowledge and skills, and for this reason we support teachers, managers and families by facilitating and promoting the joint work of all stakeholders.
Innovation because we aim to open an ongoing and fruitful dialogue with schools, implementing innovative teaching methods, which are more fundamental than ever in facing this period of emergency and uncertainty.
Networking because we support the creation of a solid and widespread presence in the area, promoting networking among all educational actors, to maximise community impact.
We have therefore refined and customised our activities to best meet these needs, dividing them into:
In 11 months (from 1/9/2020 to 30/7/2021) the project will have an impact on 3240 students, 580 teachers and 360 families from 83 schools in 12 cities (Naples, Avellino, Praia a Mare/Scalea, Crotone, Palermo, Ancona, Potenza, Perugia, Rome, Velletri (RM) and Chieti) in Central-Southern Italy.
