Parents 4 All
Parents for All is an EU-funded project aiming to support parents to deal with diversity in multicultural Europe. The project was implemented in Greece, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Scotland and Spain.
Through its activities the project aims to:
- Empower parents of the host societies and of migrant origin in dealing with ethnic and cultural diversity at schools
- Create tailor-made training material for parents, helping them to develop intercultural skills and actively support school activities for social inclusion
- Raise awareness through audio-visual material
Promote the notion that parental engagement for social inclusion is a collaborative, reciprocal and mutually rewarding process.
