World Children’s Day is celebrated in an effort to promote awareness of children’s wellbeing and rights around the globe. November 20th is the date in 1959 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child.
The International Step by Step Association (ISSA) is a vibrant international network that connects professionals and non-profit organizations working in the field of early childhood development.
A Cirle of Friends training took place near Zagreb this summer as Open Academy Step by Step invited 20 participants to share their knowledge on this highly effective approach.
In the past years, ISSA supported two member driven Peer Learning Activities based on the European Quality Framework. Now ISSA offers a first time training on the subject. What triggered the decision?
Girls are 1.5 times more likely than boys to be excluded from school, damaging their chances to succeed later in life. VVOB and FAWE aim to change this statistic.
In 2017, representatives of 38 member organizations from 22 countries attended 10 Peer Learning Activities organized by the ISSA members.
We are happy to introduce three new member organizations that joined ISSA recently: VVOB – Education for Development (Belgium), Dreamland Primary School (Romania) and Know How Center (Serbia).
We are proud to launch our new website! Feel free to browse through it, we hope you'll like it as much as we do.
