The number of students dropping out of the education system is continuously increasing. They are very often over-age students, typically with multiple learning and/or social difficulties, whose education is doomed to fail. Neither their families, nor the contemporaries can provide them with the knowledge and skills crucial for their healthy physical and mental development.
Another factor strongly affecting these often undereducated, impoverished people – our students and their families – is the worldwide economic crisis. 70% of our students’ families have to struggle with problems of housing, 50% with unemployment, 35% with health disorders
