We help students and teachers at more than 4,000 schools. We work where government support is missing. We teach teachers to work with talented and handicapped children. We want students not only to remember facts, but, most importantly, to develop their abilities and to understand the interconnectedness of the world we live in. We talk to students about modern history. We tutor children from socially weaker families, in order for them not to end up in a specialized school for mentally handicapped children – which often happens in the Czech education system – and, as a result, have few prospects for the future. We inspire students to find solutions to local problems. We teach young people about respect, openness and responsibility. And we do much, much more.
The educational programs are created and run by People in Need from four different sections of the organization: One World in Schools, Varianty, Social Integration Programmes and One World film festival.
