05.04.2018Training of active parents from Southern Bulgaria was held by Amalipe Center
Nearly 60 parents from South Bulgaria took part in training “Active parents for successful children”, organized by Center Amalipe from 23th to 25th of March in “Bryasta” Resort near Veliko Tarnovo. The participants are part of the Parents clubs and the Community councils in the schools, working on project “Every student will be a winner – 2” and are part the Network of Center Amalipe.
The bad weather and the snow, that surprised all, didn’t scare the young parents and local activists, who arrived at the training. During the training they were presented with information about the following topics “Roma people in Bulgaria and their attitudes towards education”, “How we can achieve better educational process with the school?”, “Key institutions, rights and obligations in the sphere of the education” and “Early marriages prevention”. A lot of good practices and experiences were shared. The topics provoked discussions and interesting opinions and attitudes were shared.
During the sessions the participants worked in small groups and completed practical tasks, with which they can work later in the vulnerable groups; to create and develop parent clubs and to help with cases of early marriage, dropping out of school and other.
The main goal of the event was to activate the parent community to be part of the school life and to be involved with children’s education. In the end of the training the parents shared that they feel more confident and motivated to help on local level to their children, but also to the school.
The training was part of project “Every student will be a winner -2”, financed by Trust for social achievement.
