  • Inclusive Education – a school that works for everyone.

    Many children are excluded from education because they have a disability or belong to an ethnic minority. Meet Rilind, 10, from Kosovo and Corina, 9, from Romania.

     

    For seven years, Save the Children, with the support of the IKEA Foundation, has focused on nine countries around the world. By training teachers, community members and government officials; and by helping to change laws, policies and attitudes, education can be made more inclusive.

     

    This programme has supported thousands of children from minority groups and children with disabilities, by creating a school environment that works for them too – and schools that works better for everyone.

     

    This video was filmed in Romania and Kosovo in 2018, with support from teams from Save the Children Romania and Kosovo as well as staff from Save the Children Sweden. The video contains archive footage of summer pre-schools filmed by Save the Children Romania.

  • Summer kindergarten helped Francisca start school.

    Francisca, 11, is one of hundreds of children from ethnic minorities in Romania that are in school today thanks to summer pre-schools.

     

    The summer pre-schools prepare children for school and give them and their parents an opportunity to meet respectful and caring teachers.

     

    Among the Roma, children are not only less likely to start school, but drop-out rates are very high.

     

    The programme in Romania is part of a larger programme, supported by the IKEA Foundation, that aims to include children from minorities and children with disabilities in education in nine countries around the world.

     

    Thanks to the seven-year programme, teachers, parents, communities and decisionmakers are starting to see the difference inclusion can make, not only for children that were excluded, but for everyone.

  • Rilind is finally at school.

    Rilind, 10, is one of an estimated 45,000 children with disabilities in Kosovo, where options are limited, and attitudes towards children like him are harsh.

    For seven years, Save the Children, with support from the IKEA Foundation, has focused on showing families, teachers and municipal officials that there is an alternative: That children with disabilities – and children from minorities – can be included in schools.
