The Access2Education Project has provided after-school sessions and the Smile Holidays Program to give the kids the support they need to enrol in school and successfully integrate into the formal education system.
The after-school sessions provide homework assistance and individual support from teachers specialized in work with migrant children.
The Smile Holidays Program offers the kids creative activities, physical exercise and sports, and other activities fundamental to their development during their school holidays.
Through both after-school sessions and Smile Holidays, our project has been able to benefit 569 kids in 2015, and 332 kids through June 2016.
