ISSA seeks to hire a consultant to assist in the production of a Shadow Report on the Mid-term Review of the National Roma Integration Strategies in 8 selected countries (Belgium, Croatia, Hungary, Italy, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine).
We are very excited to announce that since early October 2017, two new organizations joined the ISSA network.
From 23-25 October, policymakers, researchers and NGOs will come together to identify solutions for fighting child poverty and inequality in Africa at the Putting Children First conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The International Step by Step Association (ISSA) is a vibrant network that connects professionals and non-profit organizations working in the field of early childhood development. Established in the Netherlands in 1999, ISSA’s community today stretches across the globe with more than 75 members coming from close to 40 countries, primarily located in Europe and Central Asia.
Latvian member “Center for Education Initiatives” has launched a new initiative - in cooperation with the Jekabpils Municipality - to strengthen and educate parents. They aim for a more active participation in processes, at local and national level, that are important for families with children. Center for Education Initiative sets up workshops for parents, followed up by electronical information sheets.
During a three day "Training of Trainers", 20 professionals were trained. The training is part of the TOY for Inclusion programme which aims to improve the transition experience of Roma young children from home to preschools and schools by offering an innovative response to discrimination of Romani communities.
