24 Nov Support the initiative from Macedonia of the Educational Centrе NADEZ within the global movement #GivingTuesday
This year CSI NADEZ is participating in the global initiative to strengthen all forms of charitable contributions to society. Called #GivingTuesday, this global generosity movement at the start of the giving season proved a great success in focusing worldwide attention on the power of generosity to improve people’s lives.
Your contribution is needed to support the education of 60 Roma children aged 5-14, and thus help the new generations build their future through education! In Macedonia the participation rate in early child education by Roma children age 4-6 is only 14% and is significantly below the EU average. These children face extreme inequality at the start of their education which often leads to their dropping out from school and failure to integrate into society. Early school leaving is particularly high especially among Roma girls. Parents’ low socio-economic status and low level of literacy has strong impact on their children’ school performance. For these children it has been determined that they are at high risk of dropping out of school, so that this does not happen, they need additional help. The main activities will focus on learning the Macedonian language and meeting the standard for school enrolment for 5 year old children, homework completion, reading support, math help for school children, as well as a series of workshops on the topic of online violence and mental health & wellbeing especially during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemics. They could get this support in the Centre for education of children from vulnerable groups, in the largest Roma municipality in Europe – Suto Orizari, led by the Association CSI NADEZ from Skopje. CSI NADEZ prepares and brings these children to school, providing them with all the necessary school supplies. At the Centre, the children also receive additional after school support and healthy snacks. Advisory support for the families is also provided.
This # GivingTuesday, join with a small personal contribution, which together with all other acts of generosity at this day will have a huge impact on the lives of these vulnerable children.Your donation given on this day has a double impact because it will enable the Educational Center NADEZ to receive additional incisive funds from GlobalGiving platform.
Mark your calendar for November 30! These children are looking forward to your support!
