Description of Portuguese partner

Santotirso

Our school is located in a region traditionally connected to textile factories, which are now in complete decay. Nowadays new goods connected to the rural world have become more significant to the national interest and therefore our school may contribute to the training of young people searching for jobs and creating new work places in an area in which unemployment rate is about 16%. The students with whom we want to work come from families with unemployment problems and a low level of education.

We believe that school has a mission: Help these students to improve their skills, have a better image of themselves and give value to their traditions. We believe that the better you know yourself the more open you are to understand people and their culture. And we all belong to the same family the European Community.
