14 Jun In a new intervention area – The Mobile School Travels in Koudounia, Drama
The project team “The Mobile School Travels” on Friday, March 26th made its first intervention in the community of Koudounia of the Municipality of Drama, wanting to reach and embrace more and more Roma children.
During the intervention, new Roma children were approached and introductory games, active and educational games related to the heroes and heroines of the Revolution of 1821, as well as games of cognitive skills. The children participated enthusiastically and had the opportunity to actively participate in all the activities of the Mobile School, observing all the necessary measures against the pandemic. In this effort, our valuable assistant was the president of the community of Koudounia, Kotsambasis Michalis, who showed great interest in this action.
After two years of interventions in Drama, the Mobile School travels three times a week to areas of Drama, Kavala and Xanthi, in order to reach Roma children who are excluded from school communities or due to their family environment they can not have regular education. . The aim is to encourage and prepare children to integrate into school communities and the wider society.
