As communities and governments around the world are putting their efforts to contain the spread and the impact of COVID-19, ISSA is working to support and bring our community of professionals, across Europe and Central Asia, closer together.

ISSA will continue to work toward creating societies where families, communities and professionals work together to empower each child to reach her or his unique potential and embrace values of social justice and equity.
