Some Characteristics


Over the years we came to feel we had taken on a new responsibility: not only to take care of these children and teenagers, living out with them a deep sense of familiarity and helping them to grow in a serene way, but also to support their families.


Attentiveness to the individual needs of each child characterises our commitment: each educational activity, each initiative is thought out in relation to everyone's needs. Because every child is different, not only the difficulties, but also each child's potential and capabilities are carefully taken into consideration. In the People's School the remedial tutoring is personalised and specific projects are planned according to the needs of each individual child.


 Parties and games are essential aspects of the People's School method. These are special occasion in which children learn how to be with others, in a cheerful and serene way.

The cultural gap that the more disadvantaged children face in school compelled us to work to overcome that very divide, so that these children are no longer excluded by the schools, and so they are guaranteed the chance to learn and complete their education.

However, even if scholastic support is an unquestionable starting point of our service, we feel driven by the responsibility to follow the growth of children and teenagers in every aspect of their lives especially if the child's family wants such care or cannot provide it.

We cannot pass up the chance to educate these young people so they might meet the world's great challenges and prospects with an attitude of genuine participation. Despite their apparent cultural disadvantages, they long to open up personally and culturally.
