"Child, rich in potential, is at the heart of educational projects which ESSOR carries out with its partners."


Educational projects were among ESSOR's founding actions in the underprivileged communities of Brazil in the late 1980s, and in Mozambique since 2000. They correspond to Millennium Objective 2: “To provide elementary education for all; that is : to give girls and boys the means to complete a full cycle of elementary studies”.


Through an interactive pedagogical model, ESSOR and its partners strive to take the time to understand the learning process of children and the universe they live in, in order to create a connection between them and the adult world. Projects are based on strengthening the capabilities of those involved locally: schools and associations.
