Right to
Education

© Sergi Cámara

Education is the best tool to reduce inequality and generate opportunities for the future.

We work so that all people, without exception, are guaranteed their right to a quality education. Together with our partner organizations, such as Fe y Alegría and the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS), we pay special attention to the people and groups that face the greatest barriers in accessing this right: girls and women, students with disabilities, families with limited economic resources, people in a situation of migration or refuge, and those who have been affected by conflicts or natural disasters.

What we focus on:

Education in contexts of exclusion

Entreculturas works in contexts of exclusion where access to education is a great challenge, as is the case in countries such as Madagascar or South Sudan. Through our educational work, we guarantee schooling from early childhood and promote the satisfaction of lifelong learning needs from a focus on quality, inclusion and equity.

RIGHTS-BASED EDUCATION

Both in the countries where we work and in our country, we develop education programs with a human rights approach, considering that education is not only a fundamental right, but also has an important role as a promoter of other rights. For this reason, we deploy educational actions for gender equality, political participation, global citizenship and environmental sustainability.

EMERGENCY EDUCATION

In emergency or conflict situations, education is one of the most violated rights, affecting the development of children and adolescents. For this reason, in humanitarian crisis contexts, such as Ukraine or Syria, we guarantee their right to education through a comprehensive strategy that ensures the necessary elements for the continuity of education (infrastructure, teaching resources, teachers’ salaries) and the establishment of safe spaces (protection, food, hygiene, physical and psycho-emotional health).

INCLUSIVE EDUCATION

Schools must be places where learning is guaranteed without discrimination and where the capabilities of children and young people are promoted in a comprehensive manner. In countries such as Ecuador and Peru, we contribute to quality education for people with disabilities from low-income families, ranging from early care and regular basic education to technical education for job placement. In addition, we are committed to making our educational resources for working on global citizenship accessible to everyone (when you enter our educational website REDEC click on the accessibility button).

CHILDREN AND YOUTH PARTICIPATION

Responses to global challenges such as poverty, inequality or exclusion require an engaged global citizenry. For this reason, in collaboration with educational communities in Latin America, Africa and Spain, we promote spaces for youth participation and offer pedagogical offer pedagogical resources with the aim of promoting a transformative education for global citizenship. Examples of this are our Youth Solidarity Network (RSJ) or the spaces for children and youth of entities such as Fundación Amoverse, with which we work together through the campaign “Soy Cometa” (I am a kite). I am Comet .

TEACHER TRAINING

To encourage more young people to become citizens committed to social justice, it is necessary to rethink the school and improve teaching and learning processes together with teachers. Peru, Honduras, Chad and the D. R. of Congo are some of the countries where we promote actions that dignify the work of educators. D. of Congo are some of the countries where we promote actions that dignify the work of educators, through training, resources and educational materials, the introduction of ICT’s and the implementation of school reinforcement activities. In Spain, we strengthen the capacities of teachers linked to education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship in the classroom and in training on issues of environmental and social sustainability, human rights, gender equality, cultural diversity, culture of peace and non-violence.

TRAINING FOR WORK

We are committed to improving the employability and entrepreneurial skills of more young people and adults both in Spain and in the different countries in which we work. For this reason, in countries such as Venezuela, Ecuador and Peru, we offer technical training in various professional modalities and support for job placement or entrepreneurship so that they can build a sustainable future. The people who participate in these initiatives are mostly young people of limited resources, from indigenous communities, refugees and displaced persons or living in contexts of special marginalization and poverty.
