budget: 179,000 EUR

Improving the education sector through the construction of a model based on inclusion and education of disadvantaged children with special needs helps to improve access and quality of social services and to ensure that the right of education is a right for all and not only for few people. Promoting the children rights are part of the human rights promotion and constitute one of the precondition to build an open and equitable society. The involvement of Eritrean trade union, also thanks to its representation in education field, ensures the participation of civil society on defining and implementing poverty reduction and sustainable development strategies. Furthermore, social dialogue and exchanges of educational best practices amongst local and international NSAs will permit to introduce strategies and practices to find shared solutions, which will be duplicable and sustainable over the time. This will contribute to promote a culture of dialogue and information exchange among NSAs
