the beginning of this new millenium, 110 million of children can't
go th school. The gap between North an South is still expanding.
Non formal education developped mostly in development countries
is offered to children by non governmental bodies. This kinf of education
is well adapated to the poor populations where children must work to
support their family. Child work is not new, it has always existed in
traditional communities in which it has a real fonction of education
and social integration. But, as the poverty is growing up, this social
fonction of work decreases in front of the economic fonction.
of these facts, KEO team wishes to support some local organisations
that work in non formal education field, by bringing them material,
physical and financial help on a long term partnership.
A first project has been realised by KEO team in summer 2002 with the
meeting with our two NGO partners.
Now we are looking for new material and financial helps for them and
we still have some regular contacts by e-mail.
A new project will be realised in 2003 with a KEO team going back in
the 2 NGO partners.
KEO wish to go further by settling up some actions of education for
development for the french children. These actions are : written exchange
with the indian children, and the realisation of a website for them.
By these actions, KEO wants to contributes to awareness of the youngers
to intercultural differences.
